My husband and I came across this wholesome content on Hulu and I just had to share with my travelers on Giselle Ave.! A black man lead, sharing his love for a black woman, in a non-violent film, focused on art… centered in LOVE? Count us in!
In The Outside Story, Brian Tyree Henry takes on the lead role as Charles– a heart-broken video editor that discovers an entire new perspective on life, thanks to spending his day outside.
Read the film synopsis as seen on the official Samuel Goldwyn Films website:
Brian Tyree Henry takes on his first big screen lead role as Charles Young, a broken-hearted video editor. Perceiving a betrayal of trust as a sign his girlfriend Isha (Sonequa Martin-Green) is leaving him, Charles preemptively blows up his relationship and sequesters himself at home.
The fates do not comply and Charles locks himself out of his apartment. Stumbling into a transformational, timely odyssey exploring his community, Charles meets a dynamic ensemble of previously avoided neighbors (including Sunita Mani, Olivia Edward and Asia Kate Dillon) who show him everyone’s got issues and it never helps to keep them all locked up inside.
“The Outside Story,” is now streaming on Hulu.
