Quietly astonishing, beat after beat. Rich, round portraits. Non-professionals beat every other cast at TIFF.
The best reasons for a festival like #TIFF17 are for people to see and distributors to buy a movie like Life and Nothing More. World needs it!
American and specifically Black American lives, voices, conflicts, and contexts captured by insiders and outsiders in perfect sync. Couldn't be more timely.
