The best movies usually are depicted from real life situations. Those situations that we can all relate to. Milwaukee multi-business owner and Harmony Social Services CEO, Kimberley Zulkowski is proud to share the true story of her beloved grandmother, Margie Ree Harris, on the big screen. Under her company MzK!m Product!ons, Grandma’s House’ gives moviegoers a private and emotional look into the life of Executive Producer/Writer/Co-Producer once she moved into her grandmother’s home after years of being tossed around the foster care system. Immersed with passion, faith, family and truth, the film illuminates the trials and tribulations she faced living with a grandparent who stood grounded as an inner-city matriarch and pillar of strength to selflessly serve her family and surrounding community.

“It is time to fill the hearts of abused and neglected children with hope. It is time to give them courage to overcome the abuse they have suffered. It is also time to recognize the true heroes in their lives, grandparents, foster parents, and those who have selflessly taken us into their homes and into their hearts. ‘Grandma’s House’ is a representation of what a loving caretaker looks like,” said Zulkowski.

Grandma’s House debuted in AMC Theaters Nationwide on April 29, 2016. Prior to the film release I was honored to come out and interview some of the cast members where they discussed their role in the film, how it was working with Kimberly on one of her first major projects, and what we cane except to see them in next. Among the cast members that were interviewed included Loretta Devine, Coco Jones, and producers Yolanda Ross and Steve Curtis.

The fill list of familiar faces seen throughout the film goes as follows: Loretta Devine (Crash, Being Mary Jane, Boston Public, Grey’s Anatomy), Wendy Raquel Robinson (The Game, Steve Harvey Show), Alex Thomas (The Jamie Foxx Show, Just Married, 2 Can Play That Game), Jazsmin Lewis (Barbershop, Barbershop 2, Ideal Male, Deliver Us From Eva), Coco Jones (Let it Shine, Next Big Thing), Stephen Bishop (Moneyball, Battleship, The Rundown) and Jordan Calloway (Unfabulous, Drumline: A New Beat, DisCONNECTED).
