Colored Nerds review: character-driven moving movie of life in America’s underdogs

For Colored Nerds

Derek Calloway, director

Both Brittney Luse and Eric Eddings grew up in different parts of the US and have different outlooks on life. Luse’s more introverted, while Eddings is more extroverted. But in Brittany Luse, the film portrays a girl who’s not afraid to stand up for herself no matter how much she gets bullied.

“This is a story about your friends, your family and your support system,” said Eddings. “Every day you got to feel empowered. But it can be a long, scary process… Like this, we see a lot of diversity in a lot of people’s backgrounds… It means a lot to have people in the industry [who look like us].”

For Colored Nerds will be seen at COLERIDDE FILM FESTIVAL NEXT DOOR DEAL on February 9, 2019 at 7:30 pm at Cinema Dance Base – Mission Theatre. On January 13, 2019 at the Stanislaus Club, 525 16th St N #2.

“The film gives the audience a chance to laugh… It brings joy to the viewers that have all had to face much hardships in their lives, but never thought they would make it. All you have to do is come out for your friends and family,” said Brittany Luse.
