Angel Manuel Soto Talks Latest HBO MAX’s Charm City Kings

MUSE TV’s Lidia Mosqueda talks with the director of HBO MAX’s Charm City Kings Angel Manuel Soto about the film which is available now on HBO MAX.

Growing up in West Baltimore, teenage Mouse (JAHI DI’ALLO WINSTON, Queen & Slim, Proud Mary, The Upside) feels the fierce pull of different forces: Between notorious ex-con Blax (Grammy-nominated best-selling artist MEEK MILL) and concerned Detective Rivers (WILLIAM CATLETT, TV’s “Black Lightning”), and between the straight path set for Mouse by his concerned mother (TEYONAH PARRIS, If Beale Street Could Talk, Dear White People, TV’s “Empire”) and the dangers of gang life, which took his brother’s life. The one truth Mouse knows is that he loves the power, artistry and energy of “The Ride” — the exhilarating motorized-dirt-bike scene that is both pastime and passion on the streets of Baltimore. During one eventful summer, Mouse steers his way through two father figures, a first girlfriend, the pull of illegal choices and the thrill of stunt-riding that makes him and his friends feel like CHARM CITY KINGS.

The film is directed by Angel Manuel Soto with a screenplay by Sherman Payne with story by Chris Boyd, Kirk Sullivan, and Academy Award winner Barry Jenkins. Charm City Kings is out today on HBO MAX.
