Miss Virgina  United States / 2019 / 102 mins

Miss Virginia, a drama about an impoverished single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, D.C. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she tries to place him private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Based on a true story, Miss Virginia stars Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba in her first role as a dramatic lead; she is supported by a diverse cast that includes Emmy nominee Vanessa Williams, Amirah Vann (Underground), Adina Porter (American Horror Story), Niles Fitch (This Is Us), Nadji Jeter (Wonder) and Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine.
