Last night was the NYC Red Carpet Premiere of “Beyond the Lights” staring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, well known for her role in the movie “Belle” and her co-star, Nate Parker who we all fell in love with in “The Great Debaters”.

The movie is a love story between two characters, ‘Noni Jean’ and Officer ‘Kaz Nicols’ who saves Noni from committing suicide . Noni Jean, a new piping-hot singer who has reached stardom fast and furiously can’t seem to handle the pressures of what the life of a pop star entails.  Her overbearing “momager” mother, played by Minnie Driver,  is the catalyst for Noni trying to take her lifer.  Kaz has political aspirations, however, his father played by Danny Glover, doesn’t approve of his relationship with Noni because “she’s not first lady material”.  Therein lies the recipe for a poignant and dramatic love story with plot twists along the way.

Director, Gina Prince-Bythewood well known for directing the infamous “Love and Basketball” is very versed in telling love stories that everyone can relate to.  She has done another great job of bringing her vision of “Beyond the Lights” (originally titled ‘Blackbird’) to the big screen.  This is a great movie. It can be a date night movie or you can check it out with your girlfriends.  It really doesn’t matter who you go with to see it, just go see it!

Here are a few pictures of the stars of the movie including Noni’s other love interest Machine Gun Kelly who plays rapper, Kid Culprit and the director as well as other celebrities who came out that night to support.
