The inspirational drama “Gimme Shelter” is getting its home entertainment release this Tuesday, April 29, and Monsters and Critics has an exclusive clip below.
The film stars a great lineup of actors and actresses such as Academy Award® nominee James Earl Jones, Rosario Dawson…nearly unrecognizable as Apple’s drug-addicted mother, and Brendan Fraser.
From the special features of the DVD, this clip features James Earl Jones talking about how actors are able to transform into their roles, as they work to become someone else.
Based on the true life stories of Several Sources Shelters founder Kathy DiFiore and some of the pregnant teen shelter residents, the tale follows the courageous Agnes “Apple” Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens) who fights against all odds to find the father she’s never known and create the family she never had.
But when her father’s new prim and proper family find out Apple is pregnant, she is pressured to conform to their expectations and runs away again. Apple must rely on her own survival skills on the streets, until she meets the kindly Father McCarthy who helps direct her to a shelter for pregnant teens. Apple’s unbreakable spirit enables her to fight against the odds to find redemption, and ultimately create a family to finally call her own.
