Fate and Violence Converge in new drama “5 LBS of Pressure” from Writer/Director Phil Allocco

Published

on

This week in select theaters and on video on demand you can catch 5 LBS of Pressure which is the latest from writer/director Phil Allocco and has a talented cast that features Luke Evans, Rory Culkin, and Rudy Pankow. I had the honor of chatting with Phil about his inspiration for the film and how music has helped in his quest of filmmaking.

Filmmaker Phil Allocco is a feature film and commercial writer/director. His work has garnered over 60 awards and nominations. He was one of the short-listed directors picked by Steven Spielberg from a world-wide search of over 12,000 directors for his US TV series ‘On the Lot’ for FOX TV. His feature film ‘The Truth About Lies,’ was released theatrically in 2017 and won 14 awards at festivals including “The Best of Fest” at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

In this gripping action-thriller, Adam (Luke Evans), an ex-con back in his old neighborhood after serving a 16-year stretch for murder, walks a rocky path of forgiveness toward the son who grew up without him, while the bitter, volatile brother of the youth he killed looms in the background. Meanwhile, Mike (Rory Culkin), sick of doing the bidding of his drug-dealing uncle (Alex Pettyfer), is desperate to leave his sordid life behind. When Adam and Mike’s paths converge, inescapable destiny will give way to violence…and a final, fleeting shot at redemption.
