New Nicole Beharie Project.
According to film news Nicole Beharie will be in a new drama called 'The Keeping Room'. It is a period drama set during The Civil War (1861-1865). Miss Beharie will be playing ... you guessed it ... a slave. The plot is as follows: Two white women (Olivia Wilde and Hailee Steinfield) and their slave (Nicole Beharie) defend their home against Union soldiers in the last days of the Civil War. Sounds like a mix of True Women and Cold Mountain to me. Personally ... I DETEST the "Evil Union Soldiers Prey on the Hopeless Southern Women" trope but *shrug* it's obviously something Hollywood will never tire of. Seems like Civil War/Slave films are in style now.
