Trailer for 'All Day and a Night' with Jeffrey Wright & Ashton Sanders
"What did you do, Jahkor?" Netflix has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama titled All Day and a Night, the second feature film directed by Joe Robert Cole (Amber Lake), also known as one of the co-writers on the Black Panther script. His latest is about a young rapper from Oakland who struggles to deal with the repercussions of his actions. Landing in prison beside his father, Jahkor embarks on an unlikely journey of self-discovery, exploring the events that unite them, in hopes of helping his newborn son break a cycle that feels unavoidable. Ashton Sanders (from Moonlight) co-stars with Jeffrey Wright, and a cast including Regina Taylor, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Isaiah John, Kelly Jenrette, & Shakira Ja'Nai Paye. This looks damn good! A brutally honest tale about family and the choices we make that set us apart.
