New Film “Black or White” Starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer
New Film “Black or White”
There’s a new film entitled “Black or White starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer. From the trailer, it seems like the well-worn tale of the angry, embittered elder forced to care for a young child who re-ignites their ability to love.
Well, it’s 2014 and what’s the updated twist on the old tale, the little girl is…….wait for it, wait for it ……BLACK. So that’s where the title “Black or White” comes from, get it????. Well the film from Relativity Media, is written and directed by veteran, Mike Binder and it’s an Interracial family drama. These are indeed tense days for race relations in America and its left to be seen how this film will play out on the current landscape. According to the Hollywood Reporter the film had some difficulty finding a distributor before Relativity Media recently purchased the US rights. Yet it seems to us from the trailer the real conflicts between the two lead characters seem to be built around class based issues. Because there are SOME black people who send their children to private school and have their own pools to swim in…..I’m just saying. Of course that’s just what we got from a snippet.
But we’re onboard to give it a chance, both lead actors are enjoyable to watch and nothing beats a cute kid on-screen. Release date January 2015
