LUCE
(R) 109min
Dates not confirmed yet
In this powerful and riveting film that examines how race and class determine opportunity, Naomi Watts and Tim Roth play liberal white parents who adopted a child soldier from war-torn Eritrea a decade ago; Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) has become a model student, star athlete, and valedictorian of his class. When he writes an alarming, provocative paper about political violence, his History teacher (Octavia Spencer) discovers something that confirms her worst fears. Playwright JC Lee has adopted his 2013 off-Broadway play with the film’s director Julius Onah into a fascinating and thought-provoking story.
