Starring Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Khalil Everage and Emayatzy Corinealdi, Beats is a promising new coming-of-age drama set in Chicago’s South Side.
Directed by Chris Robinson, the story focuses on a reclusive teenage musical prodigy and his unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard…
This well-edited trailer has me interested because of the way Uzo Aduba’s character asks the revealing question: ‘Are you gonna… make sure my son doesn’t get shot walking home from school?‘
Another reason to see this is the fact that I already feel quite invested in August’s complete evolution. I want to see him make it through to the other side and I definitely want to know just how great his beats actually are.
Last but not least, did I already mention Uzo Aduba? Something tells me we’re really going to enjoy her performance.
Paul Walter Hauser, Ariana Burks, Julian Williams, Dave East, Ashley Jackson, Megan Sousa, Evan J Simpson and Jeremy Phillips also star.
