The Photograph is billed as “a romance where a woman must learn from the secrets in her mother’s past if she is to move forward and allow herself to love and be loved,” and a “love story about forgiveness and finding the courage to seek the truth, no matter where it may lead you.” And it certainly looks to be a sweeping film that will appeal to romantics everywhere. Here’s the synopsis:

When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Rae) hurt, angry and full of questions.

The rest of the cast includes Chanté Adams (Roxanne Roxanne) as Mae’s young mother Christina, Y’lan Noel (HBO’s Insecure) as Christina’s secret love, and Rob Morgan (Mudbound) as Isaac Jefferson, a New Orleans fisherman with a mysterious connection to Mae’s mother. Other cast members include Jasmine Cephas JonesChelsea PerettiLil Rel Howery, and Courtney B. Vance.
