Make the movie about classical music or cast black people. How hard is that?
If the movie had monsters or robots to distract us, it would be easier to not notice that everyone with major speaking roles is white.
This movie would be far more interesting, even with the same functional dialog, if the leads were both black women, and the music lessons were being kept a secret from our fascist alien robot overlords. The inhumanity of the mentor to build the humanity of the hero, to spite the inhumanity of the robots.
Instead we have a movie that endorses the abusive gravy-training of children. If your daughter hasn't mastered the viola by age 3, throw furniture at her until she does.
