Black or White

Black or White ★★★

A easy-going, crowd pleaser. I'll admit it feels like it could go on a predictable story path but surprisingly is unpredictable than you think and has some genuine heartfelt moments. Costner is good in another string of his late-career work where he continually plays a drunken, gravel-voiced, upper middle class male. The supporting cast is strong especially the young girl playing Costner's granddaughter and as good as Octavia Spencer is sometimes she threatens to destroy the movie with some over-the-top antics. It's not extremely memorable but for a family movie night, my family laughed and went aww at all the right moments.
