Julia Roberts, Ethan Hawke, Mahershala Ali and Myha’la star in this dystopian thriller from Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground production company, which plays on reality-adjacent fears of terrorism and technological disaster to weave a gripping story that is both suspenseful and has something to say about race and society.
