Message from the King is a new Netflix movie which stars Black Panther‘s Chadwick Boseman as Jacob King.
After suddenly losing all contact with his younger sister, he arrives in Los Angeles determined to track her down. Trying to piece together her last known movements, King finds unsettling evidence of a life gone off the rails – drugs, sex and secrets in the sleazy underbelly of the City of Angels. Undeterred by warnings to go home, King proves to more than a match for the violence he is confronted with as he relentlessly pursues the truth about what happened to his sister.
Message from the King is released on August 4th and it has a powerful message, but I can’t help feeling it’s something we’ve seen many times before.
