On a summer day during New York’s Harlem Renaissance, two school acquaintances unexpectedly reunite
New York Centerpiece.
On a stifling summer day in 1920s New York City, Irene Redfield (Tessa Thompson) unexpectedly reunites with her old school acquaintance Clare Bellew (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga). With the simple unzipping of a dress and a furtive glance, a Pandora’s box of temptation clicks open in this Sundance Film Festival sensation.
Adapted from Nella Larsen’s beloved 1929 novel, PASSING is a Harlem Renaissance masterpiece 15 years in the making. Full of seduction and psychological drama, director Rebecca Hall’s debut feature explores the mutability of identity and just how easily a once unshakeable truth can unravel.
Cast: Tessa Thompson, Ruth Negga, André Holland, Bill Camp, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, and Alexander Skarsgård
