[FIRST LOOK] Tessa Thompson, Ruth Negga Star In Race Drama ‘Passing’ Coming To Netflix

Written, directed and produced by acclaimed British-American actress and filmmaker Rebecca Hall, Passing is a gripping film, delivered in Black and white, that analyzes race in the 1920s, but still speaks to the state of the world today. It is Hall’s directorial debut. After thrilling audiences at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, the Passing movie will be shared on Netflix on November 10th.

 

The Passing movie stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga, with Bill Camp, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, and Alexander Skarsgård.  While viewers might have questions, Ruth Negga is an award-winning Ethopian-Irish actress.  She previously appeared in the film, Loving and Ad Astra.  She was born in Ethopia and moved to Ireland after her father passed when she was 7 years old.

 

Passing Movie Synopsis
Adapted from the celebrated 1929 novel of the same name by Nella Larsen, PASSING tells the story of two Black women, Irene Redfield (Tessa Thompson) and Clare Kendry (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga), who can “pass” as white but choose to live on opposite sides of the color line during the height of the Harlem Renaissance in late 1920s New York. After a chance encounter reunites the former childhood friends one summer afternoon, Irene reluctantly allows Clare into her home, where she ingratiates herself to Irene’s husband (André Holland) and family, and soon her larger social circle as well. As their lives become more deeply intertwined, Irene finds her once-steady existence upended by Clare, and PASSING becomes a riveting examination of obsession, repression and the lies people tell themselves and others to protect their carefully constructed realities.

The film has a runtime of 98 minutes.
