Sunday Chat: Today we’re contemplating on the upcoming movie “The Photograph,” which stars Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield. Rae is the daughter of a famed photographer, Stanfield a journalist covering her work after her recent death. It’s still refreshing to see Black actors assuming roles where the characters are everyday people. No stereotyping, no typecasting. Here we see Rae explore a layer unlike her previous roles, proving she has exceptional range without erasing herself completely. Her love interest is known for his experimental approach to acting and he delivers on that again. It will be a great ride with this star studded cast that also includes #LilRelHowery, #ChelseaPeretti and @teyonahparris.
Watch this heartwarming feature unfold in theaters Valentine’s Day. In the meantime, share your thoughts on the roles, film or plot in a comment. #quaintrevolt #thephotographmovie #issarae #lakeithstanfield #newmovie #blackmovies #blackactors #blackactress #willpacker #willpackerproductions
