John David Washington,
Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Explores the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland.
In Patrick's house, Miles is boxing up two portraits and Patrick says, "Dountes and Santiago can't be facing each other, they do not get along". The portraits are of Daveed's father (Dountes) and Rafael's father (Santiago). See more »

1. Those hoping to see an exciting but totally realistic film WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
2. Those hoping to see a serious film dealing with a disturbing problem in today's America WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
3. Those hoping to see incredible acting and incredible film-making by Hollywood new-comers WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
4. Those hoping to see a film that (a) sparks much thought and discussion afterwards AND (b) affects one deeply WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
Hopefully this film will be remembered when The Academy prepares its list of 2018 Oscar nominees.
