“Luv” is the independent film produced by Common, which also stars Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, and Meagan Good.

”Luv” follows a day in the life of William “Woody” Watson (played by Michael Rainey Jr.), a shy and somewhat timid 11-year old in search of a family and a better life. With his mother in rehab and his father out of the picture lives with his grandmother (Lonette McKee) in suburban Baltimore and longs for his family to be reunited. His charismatic Uncle Vincent (Common) has recently returned home after eight years in prison, determined to straighten out his life by opening a high-end crab shack that will establish him as a solid citizen with a legitimate future. Soon Vincent finds himself pulled back into the violent world he is trying to escape- and Woody has to decide whether to follow his hero- or become his own man.”

During the span of 24 hours, he is taught valuable lessons in manhood on the streets of Baltimore as his Uncle Vincent attempts to turn his life around and start a new business.  Instead, his past catches up to him and they run into circumstances that involve guns, drugs, theft and bloodshed. The film sheds a light on inmates who come out of the prison system and want to do right but are not giving a fair chance so they are thrust back into a life of crime.

This is Common’s first movie as a producer and appeared the Sundance Film Festival 2012.
