MarVista Digital Entertainment (MVDE) kicks off the month of February with the coming-of-age road tripper GRANTHAM & ROSE, starring Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters), Golden Globe Award-nominee Marla Gibbs (Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection, The Jeffersons), and Gotham Award-winner Tessa Thompson (Creed, Selma, Dear White People).

Putting a fresh new twist on the pillar of American cinema–the road trip movie–MVDE’S GRANTHAM & ROSE explores the unique relationship between a tough teen in incarceration and the feisty, elderly volunteer determined to connect with him.  Jake T. Austin stars as Grantham, a tough, tattooed 17-year-old who has just entered juvenile detention. Clashing with his fellow inmates, he’s noticed by Rose (Marla Gibbs), an elderly volunteer who mentors some of the boys. Just as tough, but also wise and unpredictable, Rose recognizes something special in Grantham and offers him an outrageous proposal–accompany her on an undisclosed journey, and she’ll spring him from the detention facility. At first, Grantham thinks Rose is crazy.  Crazy like a fox, Rose sneaks him out of detention under everyone’s noses and off they go. Along the way, the two clash ferociously, as well as change each other in ways they could never have anticipated. Tessa Thompson plays Wallis, a wayward girl with her own set of issues that joins the unexpected traveling companions and presents a potential love interest for Grantham.  Grantham & Rose is directed by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) from a script written by Ryan Spahn (He’s Way More Famous Than You) who also appears in the film, and is executive produced by Michael Urie who is best known for his roles in Partners and Ugly Betty.  The film was an Official 2014 Selection of New York No Limits Film Series and received two nominations at the Cleveland International Film Festival, as well as a Jury Award Nomination at the Lighthouse International Film Festival.

Grantham & Rose premieres on February 10, 2015. It will be available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo and Vudu, as well as on demand with AT&T, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner Cable and Vubiquity.
