Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Verified Review

This was an intense, funny, and deeply moving look at some of the biggest social issues facing our country today from race to economic disparity and gentrification to gun violence. There are some tropes and plot contrivences that could have been the downfall of the film if the writing, cinematography, and acting hadn't been outstanding. It is the total package - funny, thoughtful, with moments that leave you waiting for the other shoe to drop.

This movie is 100% an absolute masterpiece that left me shaken to my core. It is equally as tense as it is hilarious and socially conscious in its representation and love for the Bay area

The dual portrait that Blindspotting offers is heady and dense and mighty compelling.

As led by Daveed Diggs’ impassioned, tormented performance, Blindspotting is hard to shake, despite its on-the-nose plot points and melodramatic flourishes.

Carlos Lopez Estrada’s debut feature brandishes brash exuberance and stilted storytelling tropes in roughly equal measure, yielding a result that stimulates just as it cheapens itself dramatically.
