Its been a bit of a wait for the release of 'Nina' since it was first shown at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2014. Now we have a date of release and a trailer for Cynthia Mort 'Nina' starring Zoe Saldana as Nina Simoine. The film also stars David Oyelowo, Mike Epps, Ronald Guttman and Ella Thomas.
She was one of the century's most extraordinary talents, a 15-time Grammy nominee and Grammy Hall of Fame Recipient; her mesmerizing songs and passionate politics combined to make her the unforgettable Nina Simone (Zoe Saldana). But fame and fortune came with a price, and her later years were riddled with depression, alcohol abuse and isolation. Rediscovering the meaning of her life and work took courage, strength and one true friend: Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo), the man who started out as her assistant and eventually became her loyal manager. With Clifton's encouragement, the "high priestess of soul" began a courageous journey back to her music ... and, eventually, herself.
The will be released to theaters and on VOD April 22, no date for Ireland and the UK yet.
