For those of you who've expressed that you're suffering from "black rom-com fatigue," here's another look at the upcoming psychological thriller, Repentance (previously titled Vipaka).

It's been quite an active last 12 months for Jeff Clanagan and his CodeBlack Films, since the launch of 2012's partnership with Lionsgate (also a company that's been on a hit streak lately).

On the heels of successful releases like Kevin Hart: Let Me ExplainGeorge Tillman Jr.'s The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, and Shola Lynch's Free Angela And All Political Prisoners, Codeblack picked up US distribution rights to Forest Whitaker‘s thriller Repentance (previously titled Vipaka), last summer, with plans to release the film on February 28, 2014, in a limited release.

The southern gothic stars Whitaker, Anthony MackieSanaa LathanNicole Ari Parker and Mike Epps.

It made its world premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT last year, and was the opening night film at the Pan African Film Festival the following February. 

The film's official synopsis reads:

Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Thomas Carter (Anthony Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. He’s parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the “untimely” death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present.

French/Lebanese director Philippe Caland (Boxing Helena) directed the film.

The Juntobox Films production was scripted by Shintaro Shimosawa, producer by Nina Yang Bongiovi, Whitaker and Calland.

Awwwww yeah! Will check it out! Just watched "The inevitable defeat of Mister and Pete", and it was so good. Jennifer Hudson was in it and the little boy (Mister) is a break out star! Code Black has come up!
