After an uncharacteristically diverse slate of Oscar noms this year, Hollywood will be under close watch to see whether the trend will continue. Aside from "Get Out" however, things aren't looking so rosy in 2017. Films featuring black talent have been rare so far, but hopefully things will turn around as we head into the summer and fall. One promising release coming up in May is "Everything, Everything", based on a YA novel by the same name. On the surface, this story - about a sheltered girl falling dangerously for the boy next door - doesn't seem like much more than your typical sick teen romance. But with the underused Anika Noni Rose in the cast and Indie Spirit nominee Stella Meghie directing, there's definitely potential for a solid flick. Check out the trailer below:
"Everything, Everything" opens in theaters May 19th.
