Passing ★★★

Written and directed by the incredible Rebecca Hall, the story of race and friendship does not reach the heights of her superb direction and cinematography, but it still carries enough weight to engage audiences.

There are many reasons for that, not only because of the phenomenal work behind the camera, but also because of the incredible performances of our two stars, particularly Ruth Negga who, barring anything unexpected during the course of awards season, is no doubt going to be nominated. It is a showy performance where she displays a broad range of emotions, all of which she plays admirably.

All in all, even though it can be a bit repetitive at times, and the commentary on racism can feel a bit unfocused at times, it's still worth watching because of Hall strong direction and all performances.
