film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Bits & Pieces: The Black Friday Edition

We get sent a lot of film treats here at BRWC, so here’s a place we can share them with you.  They’ll be clips, trailers, images and posters, links and all sorts.  Enjoy.


Here’s a new clip for HIDDEN FIGURES, the incredible true story of the African-American women who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history.

808 will be available exclusively on Apple Music on Friday, December 9th. Here it is! 5 years after the lightbulb moment that started this journey we are releasing 808 to our ever faithful and supporting audience. Apple Music exclusively brings the movie as the first feature documentary of the platform and that humbles us beyond words. The 808 broke new grounds in music history so for its iconic story to break new ground on such a platform is perfect. Open your ears, your eyes and your soul and enjoy the journey as the 808 is the heart of the beat that changed music forever.  Click HERE to read about 808 & watch the trailer on Billboard.



IF IT WERE DONE is based on Act 1 Scene 7 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  It is an extremely high end production using a very skilled crew, high end equipment and beautiful locations.

“Inner Workings,” a new short from first-time director Leo Matsuda (story artist for “Big Hero 6,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) is the story of the internal struggle between a man’s pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half. Created by a small team at Walt Disney Animation Studios in a unique, fast-paced style that blends CG and traditional hand-drawn animation, the short explores the importance of finding balance in daily life. “Inner Workings” opens on 2nd December, 2016 in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana.”

In this brand new featurette for THE BIRTH OF A NATION, we learn more about the incredible cast charged with bringing the true story of Nat Turner’s slave rebellion to the big screen.

A young man is completely disfigured after surviving a brutal car accident. Whilst waiting to proceed with facial reconstruction surgery, “The Patient“, is covered head-to-toe in bandages and confined to a wheelchair in Doctor Ivory’s private clinic. What is mysterious is that the young man refuses to talk, or even reveal his name. Meanwhile, Dr. Ivory, has to deal with two women, both claiming to be his mother. One woman was in the car with The Patient during the accident. One woman is the mother of the third passenger, who died during the brutal car crash. Only The Patient and Dr. Ivory know who the real mother truly is. What is unclear is why he does not want to reveal it to anyone.
