2022 ( USA ) ( Biography, Drama, History )
Starring: Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison
Director: Chinonye Chukwu
Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was brutally lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.
Till is an unusual historical drama that manages to be both deeply moving and hugely inspirational without ever giving into sentiment. It reframes an historically horrific murder within a mother’s grief, brought heart wrenchingly to life by Danielle Deadwyler’s tremendous performance.
