Adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed stage play and directed by Julius Onah, Luce has been a hot topic within the film world ever since it premiered at Sundance Film Festival, receiving rave reviews almost across the board.
It stars Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes At Night) as Luce – adopted young boy who quickly becomes an all-star high school athlete, accomplished debater, and poster boy for the school, as do his parents (played by Tim Roth and Naomi Watts). However, when Luce’s teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce’s stellar reputation is called into question. “But is he really at fault, or is Ms. Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes?”
