Samera Entertainment gives you an inside look at this thought provoking mental health drama from Porter Pictures.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mental illness has had a stigma associated with it all throughout human history. It wasn’t until the latter half of the 20th century that enlightened minds came to understand the truth behind mental illness, and how to remedy it. However, there is still much to learn about what this affliction is and what can be done to treat it.
The new film Bricked puts a magnifying glass over one of the most common psychological disorders out there. It stars Terrence “T.C.” Carson (Living Single) as Dr. Robert Weldon, an accomplished therapist who treats Trevor (Tracy J. Campbell), an intelligent young man whose bright future is threatened by his bipolar disorder. The film also stars Nicholas L. Ashe (Queen Sugar), Tasia Grant (Saints & Sinners) Lauren Megan McCarthy, and Ivan Mbakop.
In Bricked, Trevor is very much in denial about the nature of his illness, but when a violent outburst complicates things, Dr. Weldon invites Trevor to stay in his home with his wife Cynthia (Tasia Grant) and young son Alton (Trayce Malachi) while he undergoes therapy.
In the spirit of classics such as Ordinary People and Good Will Hunting, Bricked is an unflinching character study of a tortured soul and the people in his life that can guide him through his ruinous condition. As Trevor copes with his inner demons, he’ll discover an old family secret that may hold the key to determining whether Trevor conquers his illness, or if his illness conquers him.
Bricked was written and directed by Aleshia Cowser, who made the film to help the millions of people who also suffer from clinical disorders like Bricked’s protagonist.
“Working with Aleshia has been such a treat! Her passion for filmmaking and how she held the audience’s interest with the subject matter at hand made me know I was looking at one of the most talented emerging voices in cinema right now.”
