nullThe Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit-produced drama, "Brotherly Love," written and directed by Jamal Hill, with Eric D. Hill Jr., Cory Hardrict, and Keke Palmer starring, opened on Friday, April 24th, in a healthy 200 theaters, and ended the weekend with a $246,902 take, for a per screen average of roughly $1,235, which isn’t very strong for an opening.

But it some times takes smaller, lesser known films like this, without the massive studio marketing budgets, a little longer to find an audience. So it might have legs, and grow over time, especially if it expands into other markets.

The Overbrook High School, Philly-set film follows basketball star Sergio Taylor (Eric D. Hill Jr.) and his struggles navigating the fame that comes with being a star athlete. 
Hardict plays his older brother June, and Palmer plays his sister Jackie – both siblings who saw their own dreams and ambitions sidetracked by their father’s death.

Romeo Miller, Logan Browning, Eric Hill, Quincy Brown, Faizon Love, Macy Gray, and Malik Yoba round out the film’s cast.

By the way, Overbrook High School counts Will Smith as one of its alums.
