Jeremy Holm understands the situation that police officers are going through nowadays.
With Black Lives Matter and systemic police issues, police departments across America bearing the bad publicities from deaths, riots, and protests. Civil rights leaders and politicians at every level made it one of the top issues showcased in the media every day.
With Still Here, the timing of the film couldn’t be more perfect.
Here’s the synopsis:
In Still Here, when twelve-year-old Monique Watson disappears from home, her father, Michael Watson, refuses to give up even as the media and police make little effort in solving the case. The assignment lands in the hands of journalist Christian Baker, who at first pursues a false lead, turning the entire case upside down. Filled with guilt, Christian helps Michael in the search for his daughter, while facing resistance from the community, the police, and his publication.
The film stars Johnny Whitworth (Limitless), Maurice McRae (Random Acts of Flyness), Zazie Beetz (Joker), Afton Williamson (The Night Of), Larry Pine (The Grand Budapest Hotel), and Jeremy Holm. Vlad Feier directed the movie from the script written by Feier and Peter Gutter.
