Watch Zoe Saldana in the Awkward and Confusing Trailer for the Nina Simone Biopic
The forthcoming biopic chronicling the life of musician Nina Simone is the topic of many conversations taking place online. The film stars Zoe Saldana as Simone and David Oyelowo as Simone’s friend and manager, Clifton Henderson.
Many can’t get over the makeup used to darken Saldana’s skin and the prosthetics used on her face. The public outcry is a dark skinned actress should have been used instead.
The film is being distributed by RLJ Entertainment and on April 22 it will be released in theaters, digital HD and video-on-demand.
