Double Feature with LOVE AND BASKETBALL

(2014) dir Gina Prince-Bythewood w/Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nate Parker, Minnie Driver, Machine Gun Kelly, Danny Glover [116 min; Digital]
Anchored by a powerhouse performance by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, BEYOND THE LIGHTS tells the story of a rising pop star who buckles under the pressure of sudden stardom but finds a new stability in her relationship with a handsome police officer (Parker).

“In every scene here, Prince-Bythewood calmly and sensitively melts our resistance to the outlandish, outsized quality of her plot and stays true to the message she wants to deliver without ever getting pious or preachy.” – Dan Callahan, The Wrap

“The fact that “Beyond the Lights” is so effective at both celebrating and critiquing extravagance and artifice can be credited to Prince-Bythewood’s shrewd understanding of the highly pitched cinematic vernacular she’s working with.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“How bracing today to have a film that’s at once fun, patient, romantic, and real.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
