A24 is distributing Morris from America directed by Chad Hartigan and introduces newcomer Markees Christmas, who plays a 13-year-old African-American boy named Morris who lives with his father, played by Craig Robinson, in Heidelberg, Germany. it’s a sweet and funny coming-of-age story about his first love (more like infatuation with a young German girl played by Lina Keller) and figuring out how to be himself in a town where he doesn’t fit in.
Like the film, the music is perfect as the romantic and coming-of-age misadventures of an American living in Germany plays out.
