The Outside Story
Starring: Brian Tyree Henry, Sunita Mani, Sonequa Martin-Green, Olivia Edward, Asia Kate Dillon, Maria Dizzia
Directed by Casimir Nozkowski
The one unmistakable advantage of this film about being seriously disadvantaged is its cast and crew.There is a clear and present celebration of diversity here. The lead is a black American man who gets locked out of his own apartment. The cast also includes a non-binary actor and an Indian actress Sunita Mani who plays a colour blind role.
Sunita plays a cop named Slater whose gender is never an issue. I don’t think her being brown or of Indian origin has any relevance to her presence in this film about a very strange kind of temporary homelessness. Not like what Richard Gere played in the 2014 film Time Out Of Mind.
Hey, this is more serious! Brian Tyree Henry as Charles gets locked out…
