Contest: Win a DVD of the indie drama Five Star

When it debuted at Tribeca Film Fest last year, gang drama Five Star impressed with the way it blurred the line between reality and fiction. This was due in large part to its casting of James “Primo” Grant, a real-life member of the Bloods, as a fictionalized version of himself. The film finds Primo taking John, the teenage son of his slain friend, under his wing and teaching him about life on the tough streets of New York. The film had a limited theatrical run earlier this year and will hit shelves on September 1. In anticipation of the film’s release, The A.V. Club is giving away two copies of the film on DVD.
