One of these days, every single musician and singer of note will get a biopic. And in 2016, it’s Nina Simone‘s turn.
The trailer for the long-gestating Nina has arrived and it showcases everything you’ve come to expect from a traditional biopic, including a lead performer buried under latex and acting her butt off. We live in a post-Walk Hard world and every movie like this has to work doubly hard to be taken seriously, but the subject matter on display here looks like it could be fresh enough to overcome the usual biographical pitfalls. Maybe. Hopefully. It depends on how you feel about Simone’s family not liking this film very much.
