With so much going on in the world, it seems like the norm for Hollywood to create a conversation with movies, TV shows and media in general for that matter.
Netflix’s new show “Dear White People” definitely will create a conversation that, for many, may be uncomfortable.
Based on the 2014 film that shares its name, the film tells a story from the perspective of students from all walks of life who attend a predominantly white Ivy League school.
Justin Simien, the movie’s director, tells USA Today, “You can’t really see the whole until you see the points of view that bring each character together. I really wanted to take advantage of the Netflix streaming format, and create something that is specific to this platform“.
“Dear White People” premieres on Netflix on April 28th.
