As previously reported, Beyond the Lights is the story of Noni, the music world’s latest superstar. But not all is what it seems, and the pressures of fame have Noni on the edge – until she meets Kaz Nicol, a young cop and aspiring politician (Nate Parker)who’s been assigned to her detail. Drawn to each other, Noni and Kaz fall fast and hard, despite the protests of those around them who urge them to put their career ambitions ahead of their romance. But it is ultimately Kaz’s love that gives Noni the courage to find her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.
Beyond the Lights opens in theaters on November 14 and was written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball). It also stars Minnie Driver, Colson “MGK” Baker and Danny Glover.
