First Full Length Trailer for Netflix Film AMERICAN SON, Adapted From the Broadway Play
We’ve got the first full trailer for you to check out from the Netflix film American Son, adapted from the Broadway play of the same name. Kerry Washington stars as a mother whose son has gone missing in Florida, who must come together with her ex-husband to try and receive answers, against the prejudices and odds stacked against them.
Washington starred in the role on Broadway and was also joined in the cast by her fellow Broadway cast members Jeremy Jordan (Supergirl, Disney’s Newsies the Broadway Musical), Steven Pasquale (American Crime Story, Bloodline), and Eugene Lee (The Crumbles).
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Based on the acclaimed Broadway play, AMERICAN SON tells the story of Kendra Ellis-Connor (Kerry Washington), the mother of a missing teenage boy, as she struggles to put the pieces together in a South Florida police station. Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee also reprise their roles in the adaptation which presents four distinct viewpoints, while also navigating the unique dynamic of an interracial couple trying to raise a mixed-race son.
This movie looks so devastating, but like it will serve up some incredible performances. I’ll definitely be checking it out. Check out the trailer below, and see American Son on Netflix on November 1st.
