As the festive season draws nigh and we turn our thoughts to family and friends near and far, Fox Searchlight brings ‘BLACK NATIVITY’ to the UK screens.

Inspired by Langston Hughs’¬† 1950s play, Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou) directs this rousing family musical, with award winning stars including Jennifer Hudson, Mary J Blige, Angela Basset, Forest Whitaker, Tyrese Gibson, Nasir ‘Nas’ Jones and newcomer Jacob Latimore, who steals it for me.

Latimore as ‘Langston’ with his¬†contemporary youthful angst is the driving force in this movie.¬† As he tries to get to the bottom of his mother’s plight, he finds himself shipped off to her parents in New York, from here an untidy web is unwoven.

Be sure to catch BLACK NATIVITY from Friday December 6th when it screens at the VUE, ODEON, CINEWORLD, EMPIRE & SHOWCASE cinemas.

Remeber to visit in the next few days where you can be in with a chance to win a ‘BLACK NATIVITY’ Goody Bag.

See you in a few.
