Gun Hill Road, starring Esai Morales (NYPD Blue, La Bamba) and Judy Reyes (Scrubs), explores the dynamics in a Puerto Rican family in the Bronx when the father returns home from prison and struggles to reestablish his role as father and husband. After three years away, the patriarch’s much-valued convictions about Latino masculinity are challenged when he must face his wife’s infidelity and his son’s evolving sexuality. This film, written and directed by Rashaad Ernesto Green — he just made the Filmmaker Magazine elite “25 New Faces of Independent Film” list and indieWIRE's “2009 Top Ten New Voices in Cinema” — premieres in Sundance’s prestigious U.S. Dramatic Competition.
