Full film details

Mae Morton (Issa Rae) is grieving the sudden death of her mother, Christina Eames (Chanté Adams) – a famous photographer. She is left angry, sad and full of unanswered questions when she discovers a box with a cryptic letter and a collection of photographs including an unseen picture of her mother with a past lover.

As Mae learns more about her mother’s past, she starts falling for journalist Michael Block (LaKeith Stanfield) who is writing a story about her mother’s career. There is undeniable chemistry between the pair, but her mother’s commitment issues have tainted her view on love and relationships.

Will she be able to move forward and allow herself to be loved? Mae must piece together what happened in her mother’s younger years to allow herself to overcome her fear of falling in love.

The Photograph portrays two parallel love stories set in the past and present. A heart-warming romance about forgiveness and plucking up the courage to uncover the truth, no matter what direction it takes you.

The drama is written and directed by Stella Meghie (Everything, Everything, Jean of the Joneses) and co-produced by Will Packer (Night School, Girls Trip). The Photograph boasts a remarkable cast, including Issa Rae (The Hate U Give, Insecure), LaKeith Stanfield (Knives Out, Sorry to Bother You) and Chanté Adams (Monsters and Men, Roxanne Roxanne).
