Dir. Chinonye Chukwu. 2022, 130 mins. DCP. With Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Haley Bennett, Whoopi Goldberg. This profoundly emotional and brilliantly visualized film from Chukwu (director of the breakthrough drama Clemency) tells the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action—performed unforgettably by the astonishing Deadwyler—we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.
