Race showed us Stephan James could be a movie star. Across The Line mints him as an actor.

Across the Line not only showcases some fine black actors, it delves into a topic that Hollywood is continuing to struggle with. It's a pity we struggle with these same issues in Canada, but also a point of pride that this film was made here.
