Till is about Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American from Chicago who was abducted and killed in 1955 while visiting an uncle in Mississippi. Till (Jalyn Hall) was accused of flirting with a white clerk in a grocery store. The film is told from the perspective of Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley (Danielle Deadwyler), and is directed by Chinonye Chukwu. Look for multiple Oscar nominations for Till. Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews the history drama film.
