Fast Color stars Lorraine Toussaint who plays Bonnie, but is playfully referred to as Bo — she is the matriarch of these women, and she understands clearly the full scope and power of her abilities. Her daughter Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Ruth, who is struggling with so many things — which includes her ability to control her powers. Saniyya Sydney plays Lila, Ruth’s daughter and Bo’s grandaughter — an inquisitive young child who’s willing to explore her supernatural dexterity to its greatest lengths. You can also catch Saniyya Sidney in Fox’s new series The Passage. This ensemble of magical Black girls are the central figures in this story, which is a tale of identity, love, and acceptance.
Fast Color’s release date is March 29th by Codeblack Films and Lionsgate Entertainment.
