Netflix has released the trailer for Nappily Ever After. It is a film adaptation of the best-selling novel by Trisha R. Thomas. It will hit the streaming giant on September 21, 2018.
Sanaa Lathan headlines, and it also features Ricky Whittle, Lyriq Bent, Ernie Hudson and Lynn Whitfield.
The film will follow a woman named Violet (Lathan) with a seemingly perfect life — a great job, a handsome boyfriend who’s a doctor, and a meticulously maintained coiffure. But after an accident at the hair salon, each of these things starts to unravel, and Violet begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she wanted. She starts to put the pieces back together with a little help from a soulful barber and his young daughter. Violet finds the courage to cast off some of the things that she didn’t really need, starting with the perfectly straightened hair and find a life that has real meaning.
Haifaa Al-Mansour is directing, and it is produced by Southside with You producer Tracey Bing with Lathan, Jared Leboff and Marc Platt. It is yet another collaboration from Lathan and Gina Prince-Bythewood, who contributed rewrites to Tina Chism’s script.
