by Michelle Preau on September 5, 2014

Black-and-White-Still1-webKevin Costner knows a good project when he sees one. When Hollywood refused to finance his new film, Black and White, Costner took it upon himself to cover the costs. Now the film is finished and premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend. View the TIFF teaser of Black and White here.

Black and White follows widower Elliot Anderson (Costner) who has entered a difficult custody battle over raising his bi-racial granddaughter Eloise (Jillian Estell). Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer plays the girl’s African-American grandmother Rowena, who thinks Eloise should live with her biological father Reggie. The controversy starts simmering when its revealed that Reggie is a drug addict. Jennifer Ehle, Anthony Mackie and Gillian Jacobs also star with Mike Binder as writer and director.

Black and White premieres this Saturday at TIFF and is set to open the New Orleans Film Festival in October.
