Time to unwind with some wine for this Netflix & Chill affair… We’re excited to root for writer/director Prentice Penny and his latest project ‘Uncorked’ which stars Mamoudou Athie, Courtney B. Vance and Niecy Nash in a generational tale that looks sure to move us!
Here’s more about the film:
Fueled by his love for wine, Elijah enrolls in a course to become a master sommelier, an elite designation given only to a handful who are able to pass its notoriously difficult exam. It’s a dream that upends the expectations of his father, Louis (Courtney B. Vance), who insists Elijah take over the popular Memphis barbecue joint that’s been passed down from father to son since its inception. Elijah struggles with the demands of school and a new relationship, while Louis wrestles with the feelings of his son rejecting the family business until a tragedy forces both of them to slow things down.
Written and directed by Prentice Penny (Insecure), and starring Mamoudou Athie, Courtney B. Vance, and Niecy Nash, Uncorked is a hilarious and touching drama about a father and son who have to finally learn to listen to one another.
‘Uncorked’ arrives on Netflix on March 27.
