Leo - Feature Film Trailer

The second Feature Film from Joy Films , Directed by Mehdi Norowzian.

Leo (Davis Sweatt), a troubled young boy who's been alienated by his mother, begins writing to Stephen (Joseph Fiennes), a prisoner serving a 15-year sentence. An incredible bond is formed between man and boy as the ex-convict is forced to face his past mistakes and make the choices that will save his new companion and himself. Alternating between Leo's childhood thirty years ago and Stephen's life today, the film's tension builds until the secret of their mystical connection breaks out. Lushly photographed and rich with nuanced performances from an A list cast, including Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love), Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Dennis Hopper (Apocalypse Now), Sam Shepard (Black Hawk Down) and directed by Mehdi Norowzian.
