Black or White

Director: Mike Binder Cast: Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, Jillian Estell



Writer/director Mike Binder's family drama Black or White stars Kevin Costner as Elliot, a wealthy citizen of Los Angeles whose wife dies in a car accident in the movie's opening scene. This leaves him alone to care for his young biracial granddaughter Eloise (Jillian Estell). Eloise's mother, Elliot's daughter, died in childbirth, and the girl's African-American father has been out of the picture because of his serious drug problem. Eloise's paternal grandmother, Rowena (Octavia Spencer) is a straight-talking self-made woman who lives with her large family in East L.A., and she decides that Eloise needs to be around all of her family now more than ever and sues for custody. Black or White screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
