*Send a strong message about this film this weekend and beyond! The Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center issues an immediate Call to Action to support the film “Beyond the Lights,”   now showing at select theaters nationwide.

From the writer and director of “Love and Basketball”…celebrity can be a lonely state, and Noni, in the glare of her fame, feels invisible, as unloved and unrecognized as Nina Simone’s blackbird. One night, she indulges a self destructive impulse and is rescued by Kaz (Nate Parker), a Los Angeles police officer who has been assigned to her security detail. As she dangles from a hotel balcony, he says three words that, at least temporarily, restore her will to live:  “I see you.” NY Times Critics’ Pick – By A. O. SCOTT
