Passing

“Passing” is a new film on Netflix. It stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga as black women who grew up together and are now living in New York City during the 1920’s. Negga is passing for white, married to a man who hates blacks. Thompson is married to a black doctor. Both women are living middle class lives. Negga begins spending time with Thompson, her family (especially her husband), and her social circle. The story is a bit slow, but both actresses are quite good, especially Negga. Worth seeing if you have the time.
