Description

“Luce” features an award-winning, all-star ensemble cast, including Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Tim Roth.


Certain to be one of the most talked-about films of the year, LUCE is a smart psychological thriller that will leave audiences breathless.


An all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a poster boy for the new American Dream; as are his parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier.


When Luce’s teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce’s stellar reputation is called into question. But is he really at fault or is Ms. Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes?


Stacked with amazing performances and adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed play, director Julius Onah has created an intense, multi-layered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today’s America.

“Kelvin Harrison Jr. is the breakout of a uniformly excellent cast.”


“Supremely cinematic. Incredibly suspenseful.” — Tribune News
