The aftermath of a police killing of a black man, told through the eyes of the bystander who filmed the act, an African-American police officer and a high-school baseball phenom inspired to take a stand.
Reinaldo Marcus Green
John David Washington,
Kelvin Harrison Jr.
Nina Geld (Winstead) is a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has -- including those around her own deeply troubled past.
A pretty decent film with a good plot but some really dragging scenes saved by the lead performance. Common's casting was poor and he looked so out of place. Would recommend this movie to indie film lovers and people who have a taste for films highlight sexual abuse.
