From the Rough which is being released on April 25, is one of the last movies made by the lovable Michael Clarke Duncan who passed away in 2012 and won our hearts in his role as John Coffey in 1999’s The Green Mile. The movie tells the inspirational true story of Catana Starks (pictured with the original team) who becomes the first black woman to coach an all men’s collegiate team of golfers to a record championship.
Also set for release soon is Belle about the mixed-raced daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral who is raised to become a proper British lady by her aristocratic great uncle. Newcomer Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays title character Belle.
