Coinciding with its U.S. DVD and VOD release this Tuesday, we’ve got a poster and trailer for Created Equal, a new courtroom thriller from actor and director Bill Duke (Predator), which follows a woman who declares war on the Catholic Church and stars 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 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.
Created Equal is available on DVD and VOD from January 16th 2018.
