Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley's relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was brutally lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie's poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother's ability to change the world.
"Danielle Deadwyler, transforms Till from a good film into a gripping one"
"Danielle Deadwyler gives the breakout performance of the year as a Black activist mother who used the 1955 lynching of her son Emmett Till to galvanize the civil-rights movement. Chinonye Chukwu crafts this emotional powerhouse into essential viewing"
"An engrossing Civil Rights drama that could turn its little-known star into an Oscar winner"
"Till is an affirmation of just how much Emmett Till’s life mattered, and continues to matter long beyond his last breath"
"Quietly stunning scenes emerge throughout"
