Teyana Taylor may have found the role to elevate her acting career in Hollywood with her role in A.V. Rockwell’s, A Thousand and One.
The movie won the 2023 Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. dramatic competition.
The Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury described the film as:
…work that is real, full of pain, and fearless in its rigorous commitment to emotional truth born of oppressive circumstances.
It is A.V. Rockwell’s debut film, and the casting of Teyana Taylor as Inez is perfect.
After unapologetic and fiercely loyal Inez kidnaps her son Terry from the foster care system, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City.
