The Toronto International Film Festival started this week and we’ve already talked about movies like Before We Go or Shelter and now it’s time to take a look at the premiere ofBlack And White, starring Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, Anthony Mackie, etc.
Plot summary – Elliot Anderson is widowed after the car crash death of his wife. Elliot has raised his bi-racial granddaughter Eloise since his daughter died in childbirth. As he struggles with his grief, Elliot’s world is turned upside-down when the child’s African American grandmother Rowena demands that Eloise be brought under the care of her father Reggie, a drug addict who Elliot blames for the negligence that led to the death of his own daughter. Elliot finds himself deeply entrenched in a custody battle and will stop at nothing to keep his granddaughter from coming under the watch of his reckless son-in-law.
The cast of Black And White is plenty of amazing actors, first reason of not ignoring it: As I mentioned above, Kevin Costner who plays Elliot Anderson and produces the movie alongside Todd Lewis, Anthony Mackie, Octavia Spencer who plays Rowena, and Mpho Koaho (Duvan), the young actress Jillian Estell (Eloise), Gillian Jacobs, Jennifer Ehle, Bill Burr and more (read the complete list of actors on IMDb) and is directed by Mike Binder.
The main cast of the movie attended the premiere at TIFF on Saturday, September 6th, check out some photos below! I will also include photos from the press conference, the After Party presented by Nespresso and some portraits. Enjoy!
