  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) August 25, 2010 - Breakout star and NAACP Award Winner Cedric Sander's latest film THE LEAST AMONG YOU hits stores nationwide today. Starring opposite Oscar Winner Louis Gossett Jr., Lauren Holly and William Devane, Sanders delivers a heartfelt performance in a role that examines the hard lines of race, perseverance, courage and determination. The compelling film's cast and crew are expected to attend a DVD release party this Friday evening, held at a private estate. (Call for details).

    Along with The Least Among You, Sanders has 2 other major films expected out this year. This week featured on E! Entertainment, Sanders talked about co-starring with Hollywood's new "it" girl Rooney Mara in their upcoming film THE SOCIAL NETWORK. The busy actor also recently wrapped filming on 50 Cent's new film THINGS FALL APART (the one he lost all the weight for).

    Sander's performance as Richard Kelly in THE LEAST AMONG YOU won him a Best Actor Award at the San Diego Black Film Festival. This is an actor to watch.


    Inspired by the true story of a falsely accused black college graduate forced to serve probation in an all-white seminary in the 1960s, The Least Among You debuts on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand from Lionsgate. The emotionally charged film stars NAACP Theatre Award-winner Cedric Sanders (American Gangster), as he delivers a heartfelt performance in a role that examines the hard lines of race, perseverance, courage and determination. Rounding out the all-star cast is Louis Gossett, Jr., Lauren Holly (Any Given Sunday, NCIS) and William Devane (TV's "24," West Wing). The DVD debuts on August 24th and contains moving special features that include an interview with the "real" Richard Kelly, plus an interview with some of the filmmakers, deleted scenes and a "behind-the-scenes" featurette.

    After his false arrest at the 1965 Watts Riots, Richard Kelly (Sanders) finds himself serving probation at an all-white seminary where he is faced with racism, daily abuse and lack of support. Just when he reaches his breaking point, Kelly finds an unlikely mentor who helps motivate and guide him. Richard soon undergoes a transformation that forces him to choose between his dreams and his destiny.
