Till12A

Directed by Chinonye Chukwu | USA | 2022 | 2h 10m | Starring Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Haley Bennett, Whoopi Goldberg

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. An honest and emotionally powerful depiction of a tragic event which became a landmark moment in the pursuit of civil rights in mid-20th century America and still lingers to this day.

Reviews

‘Deadwyler shows us the essential truth of being Black in 1950s America: that it was a tightwire, living-on-tenterhooks ordeal. Frighteningly – and this may be Till’s most vital message – it’s a reality that exists even today.’
★★★★
Sahir Avik D’souza, Time Out

‘Till is a fierce portrait of courage and a sombre study of the human cost involved in resisting this kind of barbarity.’ 
★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
