While in Mississippi for a family visit, 14-year-old Emmett Till was kidnapped and murdered after being wrongfully accused of harassing a white woman, Carolyn Bryant. When it became clear that the white establishment was unconcerned with bringing his killers to justice, Emmett’s mother Mamie turned reluctant activist, her fight becoming a major catalyst for the US Civil Rights movement.
Danielle Deadwyler brings deep emotional resonance to her role as Mamie Till-Mobley in this expertly crafted and emotional period drama, produced by Barbara Broccoli and also starring Whoopi Goldberg, Londoner Tosin Cole and Haley Bennett, who plays Bryant with bitter hatefulness. As relevant now as ever, Till is intelligent, emotional and gripping from the first shot to the last.
