If you're already over this year's Emmys, then Netflix has offered you something else to get excited about. The streaming service's first trailer for Kerry Washington's new movie American Son is here. The film, which is an adaptation of the an acclaimed Broadway, play drops November 1.
Netflix's adaptation brings back the original cast from the Broadway play, led by Washington and including Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan, and Eugene Lee. Taking place in a South Florida police station, American Son closely examines race by following the story of a mother (Washington) determined to find her missing son from four different perspectives.
"I have kids too," Officer Larkin (Jordan) says in the trailer.
"Any of them Black?" Washington's Kendra snappily replies.
The play was a New York Times critics pick, and does not pull any punches.
It's likely Netflix's take on the story won't be any less brutal. Watch the trailer below.
