Justin Simien (writer and director of Netflix’s ‘Dear White People’) challenges the notion of the standard of beauty with his forthcoming horror film, ‘Bad Hair.’
Arriving on Hulu October 23, the thought-provoking film stars Elle Lorraine as its central character, Anna, who hopes to rise through the ranks of a video TV show but is challenged by her boss (played by Vanessa Williams) who suggests she changes her hair to succeed.
Boasting an all-star cast including the likes of Kelly Rowland, Laverne Cox, Blair Underwood, Lena Waithe, Jay Pharoah, Usher Raymond IV, and more, look inside to see the hair-raising official trailer.
Speaking on the forthcoming flick, Simien stated:
“It is sort of doing very well for her career by day, but there is a hidden toll to pay at night,” he said. “It’s a psychological social thriller that is a commentary on the American experience and the kind of quiet little deaths we all have to endure to advance and be seen by mainstream society.” [source]
