Black or White Race, forgiveness and understanding

Published:Wednesday | March 11, 2015 | 12:00 AM
Elliott Anderson (Kevin Costner) is caught in a custody battle for the granddaughter he raised most of her life in ‘Black or White’.

When his wife dies in a car crash, Elliott Anderson fields another blow: the realisation that he must raise his biracial granddaughter, Eloise, alone. However, the child's paternal grandmother, Rowena, feels that she is better equipped to take care of the child, and sues for custody. With Eloise caught in the middle, both Elliott and Rowena are forced to confront their true feelings about race,

forgiveness and understanding.

Black or White is an American drama directed and written by Mike Binder. The film stars Academy Award winners Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, Gillian Jacobs, Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty/Fifty Shades of Grey), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier/The Adjustment Bureau), Jillian Estell and Bill Burr.
