Press Release – updated: Dec 26, 2017 21:30 PST
LOS ANGELES, December 26, 2017 – T-CAT Films and TUGG Inc. are proud to announce the New York City screening of the award-winning, socio-political drama Created Equal from Vision Films. Directed by Bill Duke (Sister Act 2), the thought-provoking film about faith and the current state of the world in regards to equality, representation and inclusion has already enjoyed a successful film festival season and screened to a sold-out crowd in New Orleans.
Starring Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables, Grease Live!), Edy Ganem (Devious Maids, Like Crazy), Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire, Young Guns), Gregory Alan Williams (Hidden Figures, Greenleaf) and Yohance Myles (2 Guns, This Is The End), Created Equal is based on the novel by Roger A. Brown, which offers a voyeuristic view of the stained-glass ceiling that exists for women in the Catholic Church and other religious and non-religious organizations around the world.
The much-anticipated film will screen on Jan. 4, 2018, at AMC Loews 19th St. at 7:30 p.m. In attendance will be actors Aaron Tveit and Lauren Compton and producer Thada Catalon, who will also participate in a Q&A following the film.
Created Equal follows the story of Thomas “Tommy” Reilly (Aaron Tveit), a cocky, up-and-coming attorney, who begrudgingly takes on a case for Sister Alejandra “Allie” Batista (Edy Ganem), who's desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church. Against his supervisor's wishes, Tommy files suit against the Archdiocese of New Orleans for sex discrimination without justifiable cause. As the trial unfolds, an extremist concocts a plot to stop the heresy against the church. Tommy’s faith and convictions are tested, and as he’s challenged to question his purpose, he begins the transformation from a sexist, arrogant person to one who is committed to a mission larger than his own self-interests.
