Description

LUCE

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.


"This is a powerful film that shows how far some will go to protect the reality they choose to believe. It gets into your head and stays there. "
Detroit News

"Luce" is a neatly constructed puzzle, an engrossing weave of suburban drama and sociopolitical whodunit."
