In New Film REACH, Out This Summer
The film centers on a socially awkward genius (Garrett Clayton – “Teen Beach Movie”) who divulges to a pro-suicide support group that he plans to kill himself after being constantly picked on by a former childhood friend and school bully (Jordan Doww – “Hollyweird”) and his widowed father (Bojesse Christopher – “Point Break”), for whom he harbors a deep resentment for over his mother’s death.
When the new quirky kid, Clarence (Johnny James Fiore – Co-writer/Associate Producer) in school befriends him, his plans are sidetracked. The pic offers a window into the private lives of bullies and their targets and shows how the power of one small gesture can change the course of one’s life.
RAFFAELA’s “I Love Me” is a fitting song for the new film, as its lyrics deal with self-confidence and empowerment, two issues that are a huge focus in the dramedy.
Being a part of such a powerful film with an outspoken message, along with her continued music success….RAFFAELA is certainly a rising star with a bright future.
