What do you see?

Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominated dramedy co-written by and starring Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, set in their hometown of Oakland.

Collin is trying to make it through his final days of probation for an infamous arrest he can’t wait to put behind him. Always by his side is his fast-talking childhood bestie, Miles, who has a knack for finding trouble. They grew up together in the notoriously rough Oakland, a.k.a. “The Town,” which has become the new trendy place to live in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. But when Collin’s chance for a fresh start is interrupted by a life-changing missed curfew, his friendship with Miles is forced out of its comfortable buddy-comedy existence, and the Bay boys are set on a spiraling collision course with each other.

"Blindspotting" encourages audiences to look beyond surface prejudices and really see their fellow citizens for the first time. If ever there was a film to open America's eyes, this is it.

A comedy-drama so caught up in its teachable moments that it often fails to come off like either.

A mercurial and explosive film, Blindspotting nimbly parses conflicts about race, rent, incarceration and gentrification.

Its definitely impactful, but not too engaging.

Its impactful and relevant, with phenomenal performances and directing, but fails to keep one's attention at times.
