I'm a movie and food buff with favorite genres of action, drama, the classics, and sci-fi. My favorite director is Alfred Hitchcock, and I've obsessively watched some favorite movies hundreds of times.

The trailer for From the Rough has been released. It stars Taraji P. Henson (Person of Interest), Tom Felton (Harry Potter series), Justin Chon (Twilight series), Henry Simmons (NYPD Blue), and Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile) in one of his final roles before his untimely passing.

FROM THE ROUGH is based on the true story of Catana Starks (Henson), a former swim coach at Tennessee State University who became the first woman ever to coach a college men’s golf team. With drive, passion, and guts, she took an unruly group of mismatched kids from around the world and guided them to an all-time record at the PGA National Collegiate Minority Championship. Tasked with building Tennessee State’s first golf team and finding only one available African American golfer – Craig, a former caddy with plenty of talent but no confidence – Catana Starks pushes outside TSU’s Historically Black context, and, against huge resistance, opens up the roster to underprivileged kids from around the world.

Documentary filmmaker Pierre Bagley (LAPD: Transforming the Dream) directed the script he co-wrote with debut screenwriter Mike Critelli.
