Description

Connecticut Film Festival

"Lifted" Theatrical Premiere

Thursday Night Film & After Party

To Honor American Veterans & Military Personnel

Presented By: Union Savings Bank



Lifted is the story of a young boy from the South who takes part in a singing competition in the hopes of escaping from a personal world that is falling apart. But it is more than that: the film is an inspiring and hopeful chronicle of real issues now facing millions of young American families.

Henry, a middle school student in Alabama, played by the teenage Uriah Shelton, finds refuge in music from the challenges of his surroundings: a drug addicted mother, a Reservist father recalled to active service in Afghanistan, the financial stress of a Reservist’s pay, a racist, redneck grandfather, and bullying schoolmates.

Shot in an iconic American South by director Lexi Alexander, the film showcases Shelton’s remarkable talent as an actor, but even more impressively as a singer, especially in the amazing rap duets with his father. A surprising plot twist sends us off in a deeply moving new direction, and the final moments of the film add a depth and breadth of meaning that audiences will find additionally fulfilling.

The film has been endorsed by various Military and Veterans organizations. Fans of “American Idol” and anyone who enjoyed The Blind Side will be touched by Lifted. It’s a transformational film for our times: patriotic, yet not political; spiritual, but not religious.

A film for the whole family that touches the American heart and soul.


Film only tickets may be available just before show time at the door.
