Charm City Kings follows Mouse (Jahi Winston), a Baltimore teen who is just trying to be a part of something greater than himself and find himself in this big, ugly world.
Director Angel Soto takes us through a coming of age story that is more than an exhilarating ride. It's a tour de force for the emotions as well. From the soundtrack to the screenplay, Charm City Kings packs a punch. It encapsulates a particular energy that resonates with everyone. While it is a coming of age story, it's told through a lens that is both original and authentic. Jahi Winston is accompanied by a talented ensemble that he becomes the nucleus of. It's nothing short of enjoyable and exhilarating with a great soundtrack to boot.
At a recent press day, ScreenPicks' Landon Johnson caught up with Winston to talk about making Charm City Kings, working with Meek Mill, his support system in Hollywood, and his dream role.
