Movie Info

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men's friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in. Longtime friends and collaborators, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

A raw, abrasive call for an adjustment in the way we see each other.

The ultimate success of Blindspotting comes down to the intensity of emotion percolating beneath each scene, with Diggs' face exuding fury for an unjust world that has no use for his goodwill.

Top Critic

Estrada's debut feature brandishes a brash exuberance and stilted storytelling tropes in roughly equal measure, yielding a final result that stimulates just as it cheapens itself dramatically.

"Blindspotting" encourages audiences to look beyond surface prejudices and really see their fellow citizens for the first time. If ever there was a film to open America's eyes, this is it.
