I am old enough to admit that the idea of legal marijuana dealers in the U.S. is a strange and bewildering thought.
In the new film Green Is Gold, writer/director Ryon Baxter -- who also stars -- accepts that idea as a starting point for what looks like a very intriguing relationship drama about a man and his 13-year-old brother. We have an exclusive clip, showing the moment when our hero applies for a business license for his business, and then what happens from there is not quite what I expected.
Here's the official synopsis:
In Green Is Gold, a thirteen-year-old boy is forced to live with his estranged brother after their father is sent to prison. Their relationship is soon tested when the older brother's occupation as a marijuana dealer infringes on his ability not only to raise his brother, but to even take care of himself. However, through constant tribulation, they discover the only way to get through the difficulties of life, is to work together and try to beat the odds.
The movie is now playing at Arena Cinelounge in Los Angeles. It will be available to watch via various Video On Demand platforms on December 6 via Samuel Goldwyn Films.
