Cinematical has received this exclusive poster for Sugar, which marks Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden's long-awaited follow up to their hit indie Half Nelson. This time both Fleck and Boden share writing and directing duties on a film that follows a Dominican baseball star who's recruited to play minor league ball in the United States. Back when Sugar premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, Kim called it "insightful and compelling," saying "the baseball scenes are incredibly shot; in fact, the entire film is just gorgeous, like a painting brought to life." I've been itching to see Sugar ever since it was announced; like Half Nelson, I expect a gritty reality that doesn't show up on screen as often as it should. Boden and Fleck have a knack for scraping just below the surface, discovering topics that are either ignored or simply not executed correctly.
