    It will make it’s worldwide Gala premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film
    Festival
    on September 6th, and was also selected
    as the opening-night selection of October’s 2014 New Orleans Film Festival.



     


    Already screened for journalists at the National Association of Black
    Journalists (NABJ)
    Convention in Boston,
    and the UA East Hampton Cinema
    Theater worl in
    East Hampton, New York, the film centers on a man (Costner) who, after the
    death of his wife, is swept up into a custody battle for his biracial
    granddaughter, who has been raising since his daughter’s death during
    childbirth. The girl’s paternal grandmother (Spencer) is determined to get
    custody of her granddaughter.




    In June 2014, the film won an appeal to
    Overturn the R Rating. The Classification and Rating Appeals Board overturned
    the decision , assigning the film a PG-13 rating for brief strong language,
    thematic material involving drug use and drinking, and for a fight.

    “Black and White” heads to Toronto under the aegis of LionsGate, ( with
    Roadside Attractions handling distribution rights)

    The film’s script and performances have received strong support from people who have seen it, with Oscar mentions being thrown around.

     Roger Friedman from Showbiz411:

     “I do think “Black and White” is one of the best written movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s sure to raise a ruckus, though. Costner’s Elliot inadvertently blurts out the “N” word and it comes back to haunt him in this very level look at race, language and what constitutes family in 2014. There’s an explanation offered later, which covers Elliot. But there will be a lot of discussion about this when “Black and White” hits theaters. The debate should be thoughtful, and hopefully, not incendiary.”

    Pete Hammond from Deadline
    “Looking down the list at other potential Oscar titles, Mike Binder’s Black And White which is going to be one of the Galas, stands out. Though still officially without a distributor (I hear Lionsgate/Roadside could possibly be a contender), the expectation is that this will open for Oscar consideration by the end of the year. And it should. Kevin Costner, who also produced, has never been better and he’s matched by co-stars Octavia Spencer and Anthony Mackie in a strong drama dealing with family, race, addictions and other things that could be catnip for Academy voters “

    Spencer sounds like she nails this one. Costner as a possible Oscar nominee…….well he is a past winner but never really liked him that much so maybe this could change my mind.
