Fast Color (2019, D: Julia Hart) S: Gugu Mbatha-Raw




“Fast Color” stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a woman who comes into her own after discovering she has superhuman abilities. When her powers are discovered, the woman is forced to abandon her family in order to protect them. Years later, her mission to remain unseen brings her back home. Starring opposite Mbatha-Raw is an ensemble featuring Lorraine Toussaint, Saniyya Sidney, Christopher Denham, and Emmy winner David Strathairn.

Written by: Julia Hart and Jordan Horwitz
Produced by: Jordan Horwitz, Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon.
Executive Producers: Michael Glassman, Jennifer Monroe, Alison Semenza
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6418778

Opens limited this weekend. Currently 76% on RT: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/fast_color

Kind of looks like Midnight Special.

I liked Julia Hart's previous film, Miss Stevens.

I was looking forward to this one, but I didn’t care much for it either.

Amazon is turning it into a show.

I didn't think it was THAT bad, but it was definitely slow in places. My kids lost interest early on and I wasn't too thrilled with the ending either.

This surprises me.
Other than as a vehicle for melodrama, there isn't much to work with here.

I found the movie to be OK.
I can't recall a plot exactly like it.
