Octavia Spencer stars as a teacher on a mission in the new teaser for LUCE, guaranteed to be one of the most talked about movies of the year.
In the film, 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 (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. 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?
Featuring amazing performances, the movie is 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, from NEON and TOPIC, opens in theaters on August 2, 2019.
