Top Family Films, The Hollywood Reporter Roundtables and Film News on Today's "Cinema in Noir"

On today's episode of Cinema in Noir, we chatted about Viola Davis's comments during The Hollywood Reporter's actress roundtable. She discusses playing less sanctified characters as a black actress, and the audience's--especially black women's--cold reception to that.

We also shared our views on director Steve McQueen asking THR's director's roundtable invitees--consisting of strictly white male directors--why they don't cast more black actors in their movies (note the deafening silence in the clip here).

We also go over the latest in casting news--including an update on the Miles Davis biopic--and our favorite black family films such as the 1961 classic A Raisin in the Sun and the Will Smith-starrer Pursuit of Happyness.

Listen to the full episode below.

A Raisin In The Sun is a wonderful film. Of course, the great stage play it is based on helps and the great Sidney Poitier! Think I'll watch the film again soon actually.
