This smart psychological thriller is set to be one of the most talked-about films of the year. An all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a poster boy for the new American Dream. As are his parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. When Luce’s teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce’s stellar reputation is called into question. But is he really at fault, or is Ms Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes?
Stacked with amazing performances and adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed play, LUCE is an intense, multi-layered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today’s America. Naomi Watts and Tim Roth are forced to reckon with the poster boy image of their adopted son after his high school teacher makes an alarming discovery.
