Based on inspiring true events, Gimme Shelter, tells the story of a young girl, “Apple” (played by the remarkable Vanessa Hudgens), who faces the reality that she needs to grow up too fast as she finds herself both homeless and pregnant.
She flees from her abusive, drug addict mother, played by Rosario Dawson, to her affluent father, played by Brendan Fraser, who turns her away. Finding herself then in the caring arms of a stranger, played by the fabulous James Earl Jones, she discovers personal solace and hope for a bright future when she becomes part of an unexpected family by way of a suburban shelter for homeless teens.
Gimme Shelter hits theaters tomorrow, Friday, January 24th. Click HERE for showtimes in your area.
