Netflix Presents: “Monster”

The Sundance Film Festival has independently brought to light some of the most groundbreaking, yet controversial movies to the forefront. Director Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitville Station” starring a young Michael B. Jordan played Oscar Grant, a 22-year old who went viral by being fatally shot by police. Paving the way for these topics, director Anthony Medler debuted his movie, “Monster” at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. After critically acclaimed reviews and 3 years of anticipation, Netflix has released the film on their platform for the world to witness. 

Emerging star actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. plays Steve Harmon, a 17-year-old film student with an incredible knack for photography. Raised by a distinguished married couple in Harlem, Steve has a promising future as a young black male with a passion for the arts. Due to an unexpected chain of events that turned his life upside down, Steve drastically gets himself involved in a peer-pressured robbery that resulted in a man being murdered. In a system that champions justice, it is soon realized that you’re guilty until proven innocent if you’re a young black male in America. The story entails Steve’s experience going through a legal battle ultimately for his life. 

A star-studded cast featuring John David Washington, Jeffrey Wright, Jennifer Hudson, ASAP Rocky, and Nas ensures that this movie is a must-see film to watch. Comment below your review of the movie and what you like or dislike about it.
