Trivia

♦ After a three-decade career playing more than 75 mostly supporting roles, this film marks Viola Davis’s first lead role in a major studio movie.
♦ In prepping for the project, Viola Davis asked director Steve McQueen what kind of wig or extensions she should wear to play Veronica. She was shocked when McQueen told her to wear her hair as is. Davis later remarked that this was a liberating experience for her and represented an important social statement.
