Director Tommy Oliver with Codeblack & Liongates Present : 1982

1982 coming March 1st on DVD and Demand 

Director Tommy Oliver 
1982 is a film filled with emotions of roller-coaster tears with hope that joy will return to this family. Tommy Oliver directed this movie with the intent show that we always see one side of addition, we often forget the lives effected. Mr. Oliver shows how far a husband and father will go to save his family; this movie shows a family where a father is fighting to save his wife but at the risk of trying to save her, puts his daughter in conflict during the process.  Addiction can be anything that controls your life causing you to forget the importance in life including your family. This movie also is the last movie you'll see legendary actress Ruby Dee featured, after speaking with Tommy Oliver he told me how when it came to casting she was the only thought but the question was if she was willing to take the role.  He talked about how she brought such life to the set; Hill Harper plays the husband fighting for his wife while trying to protect his daughter. Actress Sharon Leal portrays the wife losing her way to drugs and addiction; even he good friend played by La La Anthony has no words but feels some remorse. You''ll see Wayne Brady like never before in a role that makes feel conflicted toward the surprising shock that later unfolds. Added to the dynamic mix of this film are actors Bookem Woodbine, Quinton Aaron with their supporting roles showing how a community can be affected by individuals addictions. Tommy Oliver told he about how this film hit close to home, his mother was an addict among she wasn't aware of the damages she was leaving behind. The silver-lining is that he told me she saw the movie and apologized what he addiction had to him in his youth. The movie hits even closer being on site and location, Tommy Oliver has directed many films and teaming up with Codeblack and LionGates this film is a must see family movie. It was a pleasure interviewing Mr. Oliver he broke down how the film wasn't about focusing on the addiction but the family that it leaves behind.  Much gratitude Tynicka Battle of Tynicka Battle Digital for sending this film to review. You won’t walk away disappointed but you'll view the affects differently. However with hope it can heal if you’re willing to allow it to let go, and heal from the pain. Powerful debut film from a powerful director who showcased heartfelt emotions in a relationship, marriage, fatherhood fighting to overcome.
