"A deeply smart film about race and expectations." - Brian Tallerico, rogerebert.com

"This cumulatively unnerving psychodrama, where everyone harbors a deep secret, couldn't be more relevant to today's America."
- Tomris Laffly, The Wrap

"A smart and sophisticated inquiry into race and class." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Certain to be one of the most talked-about films of the year, Luce is a smart psychological thriller that will leave audiences breathless. 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?
