Netflix has released the trailer to its original film Nappily Ever After, starring Sanaa Lathan. The film is an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Trisha R. Thomas and will launch on September 21 globally.
Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, and written by Adam Brooks and Cee Marcellus, the film also stars Ricky Whittle, Lyriq Bent, Ernie Hudson and Lynn Whitfield.
Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has a seemingly perfect life — a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn’t go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really 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.
Hudson portrays Lathan’s father, Richard, who makes big change in his life to become a male model. Whitfield plays Violet’s mother, Paulette. Whittle will play Clint, a doctor from London who has a long-term relationship with Violet. The duo separate when Whittle’s character begins to feel he doesn’t really know Violet, no matter how close they are or want to be.
Lathan also serves as a producer alongside Tracey Bing, Jared LeBoff and Marc Platt.
