Directed and written by Gina Prince-Bythewood, Beyond The Lights is a romantic drama starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker. When the film was added to the Netflix category, Prince-Bythewood was outspoken about her film being “lumped together with other black films only”, according to Shadow and Act, an independent film blog.

“Unprepared for the demands of fame and the conflicts that success generates, rising musical star Noni Jean finds herself in a moment of suicidal despair – until she’s rescued by a young policeman who’s destined to become her lover,” according to Netflix.
