THE SALON is a sassy and heart-warming film for the entire family. Written, produced and directed by Mark Brown (BARBERSHOP) it stars Terrance Howard and Vivica A Fox (Jenny) as the inheritor of a neighborhood beauty salon.
Jenny (Vivica A Fox) is being forced to sell her shop to the Department of Water and Power (DWP) due to eminent domain, and must accept the money she is offered for her property. Regardless of the legal advice Jenny receives, she refuses to let the corporate giant take the one remaining pillar of her inner city neighborhood. She declines the money and decides to take on the DWP in court, all the while keeping it from her salon's outrageously funny and colorful employees and clientele. A classic tale of the underdog, THE SALON is a fresh look on the inside of a salon and inner city neighborhood where the unexpected happens and the "mom and pop" shop prevails. Hear what women talk about behind closed doors, enjoy the ride at... The Salon, where you go to get more than just a hair cut.
The film also stars Kym Whitley, De'Angelo Wilson, Dondre Whitfield, Taral Hicks, Monica Calhoun, Dabir Snell, Brooke Burns. Based on Shelly Garrett's hit stage play, "Beauty Shop", THE SALON will leave you howling in your seats.
