    “Custody,” executive produced by Viola Davis and starring Davis, Hayden Panettiere, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Ellen Burstyn, and Tony Shaloub, premieres Mar. 4. The story revolves around three women who are brought together when a hard-working single mother (Moreno) has her children taken away from her. Panettiere plays the recent law school grad charged with representing the mother, while Davis plays the judge on the case.

    “Custody” is written and directed by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine (Into the Woods). Lauren Versel, Katie Mustard, Lapine and Roy Furman serve as producers. Davis, Julius Tennon, Jeff Elliott, Chad Moore, Gregory P. Shockro, Daryl Roth and Sandy Robertson also executive produce.

    Looks like Viola will probably be a double acting nominee next year at the Emmys now.

    ^ That would be amazing! Apparently, Tony Shaloub is playing Viola’s husband in the movie. Very interesting. I can’t wait to see it!

    This title thread is very misleading.

    Davis isn’t the “star” or focus of the film. Moreno is. The only reason this thread was created is b/c of Davis when her role might not even qualify for the 5% rule. This also sounds like that clichéd Lifetime sort of movie of the week Nancy McKeon or Meredith Baxter would repeatedly star in somehow in the 90s. There just needs to be an abusive husband involved somewhere in the storyline. Its only appeal and hint of difference is with Moreno. Don’t expect the Emmys to bite or break the curse with this hammy-sounding project.

    ATypical have you seen the film? My guess would be no. If you have congratulations. Whether or not it is embraced by the emmys or not is irrelevant. I’m sure DCurrie titled it as such because anytime you see anything about the movie Viola has top billing. Simply because Moreno’s character is the mother of the kids doesn’t make her the lead.

    I haven’t seen it and you haven’t either.

    No, I haven’t seen the film and neither have you. It’s all speculation. I’m going on the description where anyone reasonable would think the film is focused on the mother in a custody battle and not the damn judge. But since the only reason this is being talked about is b/c of Viola Davis and you all worship her like a cult, I totally get it. Let’s not act like you all care about this film though, but one person who isn’t the subject or main character.

    Didn’t think you had seen it and neither have I so we’re both speculating. Oh and at least you’re right about one thing… I absolutely adore Viola Davis and don’t recall making that a secret on these forums. Even though I didn’t make the thread I didn’t realize there was a restriction on making a new thread about a new TV movie debuting. Also, don’t act like you don’t change the tampon of Julianna Margulies and some of these actresses on here either in your worship sort of way. The nerve of people.

    Lmao! #POW! But back to the subject matter, I made the thread how I’ve read it in articles and I can’t wait to see it!

    To the degree that you would report on Viola Davis’s menstrual cycles on here if you could? Not even close. But nice try tho. I laughed.

    I am excited that this movie is being released on Lifetime. I play the little boy that gets taken away. Its a great story and touches on the realities of a courtroom. It was very well written by an Award winning director and writer. It was an honor working with James Lapine, he is very dedicated to the art of acting and taught me so much.

    Viola is very sweet and caring as well as Catalina and Hayden. They took care of us as if we were their children. I Loved working on this project and Im so happy to share this film with you all.   I saw the film, and not because I am in it.. But it is good. I hope you guys do like it… We all worked very hard to keep the integrity of the story and realness with a message.
