In Blindspotting, Grammy and Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, The Good Lord Bird) stars as convicted felon Collin Hoskins. He’s just three days from completing his probation, but his best friend Miles Turner isn’t making it easy to get there. Then Collin witnesses a white police officer gun down a black civilian on the streets of his home turf in Oakland, California, and feels his carefully controlled reality begin to slide out from under him.
Diggs, who co-wrote the script, was nominated for 2019 Black Reel awards for Outstanding First Screenplay, as well as Outstanding Breakthrough Performance.
Blindspotting has a 94% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Entertainment Weekly calling it, “A timely meditation on what it means to be black and presumed guilty in America.”
Former US President Barack Obama listed it among his favourite films of 2018, and a spin-off series based on the film has been greenlit by Starz.
