The LIL Voice Movie focus on Black Friendship, Family and Love

Posted By: Nea Simone on November 12, 2020

Malik Armstrong portrayed by Lynn Andrews, III is trying to rebuild and reconnect the shattered pieces of his life after returning home from prison. Teiana Banks, who plays Teiana, is Malik’s no-nonsense, yet caring, childhood friend and ex-girlfriend who offers him a place to stay after a **** confrontation at his mother’s home, Renee Jones (Days of Our Lives, Friday the 13th) plays Malik’s mother. When Malik seeks out his friend Telvin Griffin (Queen Sugar) he learns that friendship was never part of the equation. After a series of bad choices that threaten Malik’s freedom, he befriends a young boy named Jonah played by Evan Myles Hosely (S.W.A.T., Carter High) who teaches him to pay attention to the little voice that speaks to us all. As Malik attempts to teach Jonah, he soon recognizes he is the one being taught.

The LIL Voice breaks away from the predictable storyline and compels the audience to consider the barriers and opportunities around us, if we pay attention.



It brings into focus the power of love, friendship and family, to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Writer(s) Arthur Muhammad and Tara Youngblood's story of redemption, love, and second chances is uplifting without being predictable or cliché. The dialogue is empowering and thought-provoking and frames the mindset of someone who has two choices to self motivate or self destruct.

The Lil Voice will have you rooting for Malik’s success and sighing with relief when he begins to take heed of the still small voice inside us all. In the end, it’s a film with heart and a positive message that audiences are craving, not only to be entertained, but to be moved. In the words of Malik when confronted with an obstacle, "Today is good day. Tomorrow will be a better one."

The LIL Voice is available On Demand and all major streaming platforms, written and directed by Arthur Muhammad, "Carter High". As we move from good to better, let's support the Black filmmakers and content creators who are telling our stories authentically and demonstrating black love.
