After returning home just a few minutes after his curfew, Collin (Daveed Diggs) is reminded by his probation officer, James (Kevin Carroll), that he’s a convicted felon until proven otherwise.
'Prove otherwise at all times,' James adds. It’s a stern warning spoken not as a parole officer to a parolee but as one black man to another - to prepare Collin for the prejudices he’ll face as a young black man who also happens to be an ex-con.
'Blindspotting is one of the best movies I’ve seen… This movie aligns craft with content to perfectly carry the audience through its joys and sorrows. I say it’s uplifting, heart-wrenching, brave in its content, and bold in its aesthetic.' Daniel Pappas, Irish Film Critic
'Funny, vibrant, insightful, tragic, achingly timely, and yet with an underlying message about empathy that is timeless, Blindspotting may be the summer’s most essential movie.' Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
