Storyline

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

A story of identity and friendship
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Blindspotting is 2018's refresher of comedy and drama. It is a story of identity and friendship from the perspective of an ex-convict trying to make it out of a halfway house in the city of Oakland. Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal bring a great performance to screen through beats of intense action and lyrical commentary on issues faced in real life.
