5 Lbs Of Pressure – Interview with Filmmaker Phil Allocco

Filmmaker Phil Allocco joined our Gadi Elkon to discuss the feature film 5 Lbs of Pressure!

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.

Phil talked with Gadi about the significance of the title, his amazing cast, and making Manchester England his New York City!

The film is out in theaters, on-demand and available digitally this Friday March, 8th.
