K-11 is a film not many people might know about. K-11 is the directorial debut of Jules Stewart who also wrote the screenplay. Jules Stewart might be more well known to the Twilight crowd as Kristen Stewart’s mom. Jules Stewart has been in show business for a long time, and what I have seen of this film so far has me intrigued. It focused on the LA County Men’s Central Jail and the characters that inhabit the wing called K-11. Of course this is an indie film, but it certainly has more than just indie actors attached to it.
K-11 stars Goran Visnjic, Kate del Castillo, Portia Doubleday, D.B. Sweeney, Jason Mewes, Tara Buck, Tommy Lister, and Cameron Stewart.
Both trailers released for the film can be seen below.
“K-11 is a riveting drama that deals with the politics of race and gender-identity in the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail.
The film follows Raymond Saxx Jr. (Goran Visnjic), a powerful record producer who wakes from a drug-induced blackout to find himself locked up and classified “K-11.” Plunged into a nightmarish world ruled by a transsexual diva named Mousey (Kate del Castillo), Raymond is truly a fish out of water. Complicating matters are a troubled young transgender named Butterfly (Portia Doubleday), a predatory child molester (Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister) and the ruthless Sheriff’s Deputy, Lt. Johnson (D.B. Sweeney). Ray’s struggle to contact the outside world and regain his freedom seems impossible, but he must learn to navigate this new power structure if he is ever going survive and be in control of his life again.”
K-11 is in theatres March 15, 2013.
