Netflix’s feature adaptation of the acclaimed Broadway play “American Son” has released an official trailer ahead of its premiere on the service November 1st.
The stage show’s four key original cast members – Kerry Washington, Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee – all reprise their roles for the production.
Washington plays Kendra Ellis-Connor, the mother of a missing teenage mixed-race boy, as she struggles to put the pieces together in a South Florida police station. The story unfolds from four distinct viewpoints.
Tony Award-winner Kenny Leon (“Fences”) helms the adaptation of Christopher Demos-Brown’s play. Filming began mere weeks after the original play closed out its run in January and the movie premiered at Toronto the other week.
