BEYOND THE LIGHTS
In "Beyond The Lights," Director Gina Prince-Bythewood weaves a story of music and romance, examining how a young girl’s (Noni Jean) youthful aspirations to become a singer are later shaped by the image-obsessed pop culture landscape her music exists in. Struggling with her newfound success, she attempts suicide, but is saved by a police officer, Kaz (Nate Parker), who sees something deeper in her. WENT TO SEE BEYOND THE LIGHTS ON WEDNESDAY EVENING. THE FILM WAS A VERY BELIEVABLE LOVE STORY I LIKED IT A LOT. THE CHARACTERS WERE VERY LIKEABLE. DIRECTOR GINA PRINCE-BYTHEWOOD ATTENDED THE SCREENING ALONG WITH ACTOR NATE PARKER WHO STARS AS THE COP. THEY VERY PATIENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS AND GAVE A VERY THOUGHTFUL BACKGROUND OF THE MAKING OF THE MOVIE. GO SEE BEYOND THE LIGHTS.
