Exclusive 'LUV' Clip: Cracking Crabs With Common

If you aren't too confident with a crab and a mallet, don't worry. Common will show you the way.

In this exclusive clip from "LUV," Common plays a man with a troubled past who forms an unlikely bond with his nephew over the course of one day in Baltimore. Here, he shows the boy how to crack a crab.

Director and co-writer Sheldon Candis based the film on his experiences growing up with his uncle who, unbeknownst to Candis at the time, was a notorious drug dealer.

"LUV" will premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
