‘Freedom’ Trailer Starring Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Two men separated by time are united in their search for freedom in this gripping tale of slavery, endurance, despair, and redemption. In 1856, Samuel Woodward (Academy Award Winner® Cuba Gooding, Jr. – Selma, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Red Tails) and his family escape their cruel life on a Virginian plantation and begin a dangerous trek to Canada on the Underground Railroad. Over 100 years earlier, in 1748, Captain John Newton (Bernhard Forcher – “Grimm”, “Supernatural”, Boys of Abu Ghraib) is about to set off across the sea with a ship full of slaves. Both men are having struggles of faith and conscience, and both will be tested severely in their journeys. Woodward is relentlessly pursued by a slave hunter, Plimpton, and his two thugs. They will stop at nothing to capture the family, dead or alive. Newton will face sickness, sorrow, and a fierce storm that will endanger the entire ship. In the end, both men will be united by a bond that spans a century and will prove to be the ultimate gift of grace. Available on DVD: July 14.
