Following her role in the horror film MA, Octavia Spencer stars alongside Naomi Watts, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Tim Roth in the psychological thriller Luce.


The film centers on an all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a poster boy for the new American Dream. As are his parents (Watts and Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. When Luce’s teacher (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?


Adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed play, director Julius Onah has created an intense, multi-layered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today’s America.


Luce arrives in theaters on August 2, 2019, from Neon and topic.
