Trailer For ‘Fast Color’ Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Video)

The trailer for Fast Color, a new superhero woman-led drama starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was released on Thursday. The actress, also known for Beyond The Lights, plays Ruth, a woman who has been on the run since her superpowers were discovered. Now, years after abandoning her mother and daughter, she returns to the farmhouse where she grew up and faces her family again.

Julia Hart, who directed and co-wrote the film with her husband, producer Jordan Horowitz (La La Land), told EW:

“When Jordan and I were first writing the script, we saw Beyond the Lights, and we were like, ‘Oh my God, this is the character that we’re creating, she has to play this part,’” says the filmmaker. “What was interesting about that was, what started out as a story about female power and the power of mothers, ultimately became about the power of women of color, which, as a white woman, was something much bigger than me and my understanding of the world. Having such incredible actresses like Gugu, and then Lorraine Toussaint who played her mother, and Saniyya Sidney who plays her daughter, who are also women of color, was a pretty incredible experience. It was such a privilege to watch the story become something bigger than me and my experience of being a woman.”

Fast Color had its world premiere at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival and is set to hit theaters March 29.
