MGK stars in the new romantic-drama Beyond The Lights with Belle’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Red Tails, Nate Parker. Written and directed by Love and Basketball’s Gina Prince-Bythewood, the story centers around Mbatha-Raw who plays Noni, the world’s latest pop sensation in an abusive relationship with her rapper boyfriend, played by Kelly who makes his first starring role in a film.
Trapped in a sex-sells music industry, Noni attempts to jump off a balcony but is rescued by Parker, a policeman assigned to her detail who has dreams of one day becoming a politician. The two begin a forbidden love affair and are encouraged to place their romantic interests to the side.
Due out November 14, Minnie Driver and Danny Glover play parents to Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker’s character and do their best to tear the couple a part. With Love and Basketball being such a cult classic, we expect Beyond The Lights will be just as amazing.
