Academy Award Winners Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson star alongside Jacob Latimore, Angela Bassett, Tyrese Gibson and Mary J. Blige in the Kasi Lemmons directed musical-turned-movie.
Adapted from Langston Hughes’ celebrated play, “Black Nativity” follows Langston (Latimore), a street-smart teen from Baltimore raised by a single mother, as he travels to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his distant relative Reverend Cornell Cobbs (Whitaker) and Aretha Cobbs (Bassett). Defiant to Reverend Cobbs’ strict rules, a frustrated Langston is focused on returning home to his mother, Naima (Hudson). Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey. Along with new friends and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family.
Black Nativity hits theaters November 27th this fall.
