Delia’s Gone, starring Stephan James and Marisa Tomei, dropped its first trailer recently and has now released a new clip ahead of its release.
It is based on the short story 'Caged Bird Sing' by Michael Hamblin and premiered recently at the Micheaux Film Festival.
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Delia’s Gone follows Louis (Stephen James), who has an intellectual disability and lives with his older sister Delia (Genelle Williams) amidst her struggles with addiction following their father’s death. After a night of drinking, Delia’s truck is found abandoned at a bar, drawing suspicion from the local sheriff (Marisa Tomei) who soon discovers she’s been killed. All evidence points to Louis who, pressured by police, pleads guilty and is sentenced to five years in prison for his sister’s murder. Upon release, Louis is confined to a home care facility where he is visited by Stacker (Travis Fimmel), one of the men to last see Delia alive, who implies that there is more to her death than meets the eye. Armed with this new information, Louis escapes the facility on a personal mission to find who is responsible for Delia’s mysterious death.
The film is directed and written by Robert Budreau and also stars Travis Fimmel, Paul Walter Hauser, and Genelle Williams.
The new clip features James’ character Louis, meeting Fimmel’s Stacker, as more about the night his sister went missing is revealed.
The film is due in theaters on Aug. 19.
