Kerry Washington had critics and fans brimming with buzz over her role as “Kendra” in the US Broadway play, ‘American Son.’ Now, with backing from Netflix, the award-winning actress has created a film adaptation of the production.
Lauded for tackling the uncomfortable topic of racial bias in the U.S. justice system, ‘Son’ tells the story of an estranged couple (Black mother and White father) who reunite to get answers about the whereabouts of their missing teen son. Washington – who also serves as a producer – is joined by co-stars Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee, all of whom reprise their respective roles from the play.
To whet appetites, Netflix has unveiled an extended trailer ahead of the movie’s November 1 debut. See it inside.
