Beyond the Lights
If you’re looking for a romantic movie about young love then you’re in luck. Beyond the Lights chronicles the life of a rising pop star who is becoming exhausted by the demands of the music business. It isn’t until she meets a handsome, yet gentle police officer that she finds love and peace. The film stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Minnie Driver, Nate Parker, Danny Glover, and rapper Machine Gun Kelly (aka Colson Baker). Stream Beyond the Lights now on Netflix.
Lee Daniels’ The Butler
Before Lee Daniels brought us the critically-acclaimed hit Fox television series, Empire, he presented the world with the award-winning film, The Butler. The film, starring Forrest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and Terrence Howard, tells the story of a White House butler who served under eight presidents. Loosely based on the real life of Eugene Allen, The Butler chronicles notable political and social events of the 20th century during Cecil Gaines’ (Forest Whitaker) 34-year tenure. The Butler is now available on Netflix.
Black or White
This film is about race, forgiveness and understanding. Black or White tells the story of a white grandfather who is attempting to care for his beloved biracial granddaughter. The movie takes a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white. Black or White is now available on Netflix.
