Hollywood: The official trailer for the upcoming father-son drama “Concrete Cowboy,” has been released as Netflix plans to stream it on April 2.
The 48-year-old actor, Idris Elba, plays a father who wants to reconnect with his estranged son.
In September, the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Idris Elba told an American media outlet during an interview that there are misconceptions around Black cowboys in history.
First-time feature filmmaker Ricky Staub directed the film, Concrete Cowboy. Ricky also co-scripted it with Dan Walser. The flick’s producers include Elba, Tucker Tooley, Lee Daniels, Dan Walser, Jeff Waxman and Jennifer Madeloff.
Official synopsis of the movie “Concrete Cowboy” provided by Netflix is: “When 15-year-old Cole (‘Stranger Things’ actor Caleb McLaughlin) is expelled from school in Detroit, he is sent to North Philadelphia to live with Harp (Idris Elba), his estranged father. Harp finds solace in rehabilitating horses for inner city cowboys at the Fletcher Street Stables, a real-life black urban horsemanship community that has provided a safe haven for the neighborhood residents for more than 100 years. Torn between his growing respect for his father’s community and his reemerging friendship with troubled cousin Smush (Jharrel Jerome), Cole begins to reprioritize his life as the stables themselves are threatened by encroaching gentrification.”
