  • The Photograph - In Theaters Valentine's Day

    On Valentine’s Day, Issa Rae (HBO’s Insecure, Little) and LaKeith Stanfield (FX's Atlanta, Sorry to Bother You) connect in a romance where a woman must learn from the secrets in her mother’s past if she is to move forward and allow herself to love and be loved.

    When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Rae) hurt, angry and full of questions. When a photograph tucked away in a safe-deposit box is found, Mae finds herself on a journey delving into her mother’s early life and ignites a powerful, unexpected romance with a rising-star journalist, Michael Block (Stanfield).

    From writer-director Stella Meghie (The Weekend, Jean of the Joneses) from her original screenplay comes a sweeping love story about forgiveness and finding the courage to seek the truth, no matter where it may lead you.

    The Photograph is produced by Will Packer, blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office, including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man, and by James Lopez, president of Will Packer Productions. The film is executive produced by Meghie, Erika Hampson (co-producer Late Night, Life Itself) and Rae.

    The film also stars Chanté Adams (Roxanne Roxanne) as Mae’s young mother Christina, Y’lan Noel (HBO’s Insecure) as Christina’s secret love, and Rob Morgan (Mudbound) as Isaac Jefferson, a New Orleans fisherman with a mysterious connection to Mae’s mother.

    This looks so low budget. Like Tyler Perry quality. Why do all black movies look like straight to DVD? I think it's deliberate.

          I cannot wait to see the press run with Lakeith and Issa doing interviews together... awkward black girls and awkward black boys will finally get their moment. It's gonna be a hot meme fiasco. I don't know who is gonna be interviewing them and if I saw them on a street....I wouldnt know a thing. Sorry to that Interviewer

                            Yow, no cap, i always thought these two actors were underrated and had so much in them to let out right after i watched 'Insecure' and 'Sorry to bother you' not forgetting 'Atlanta' and 'Someone Great'. Then this happens😂...right here and now, i know some producer, director or studio out there has still got people like me covered 🔥
