BET Film Open - Essence Atkins - Keith Robinson - Ice Cream Convos Podcast

On this special episode of the Ice Cream Convos Podcast, we chat with Essence Atkins and Keith Robinson, the stars of the BET original film, “Open.”

“Open,” written and directed by Cas Sigers-Beedles, is a romantic drama that showcases the alternative perspective of open relationships. 

As a child of divorce and a woman noticing the infidelities in the world, the main character Wren (Atkins) decides to ask her husband (Robinson) for an open marriage to avoid the pain of him cheating behind her back. 

Navigating the struggles of her bakery business, social life, and marriage, Wren finally thinks she has it all figured out until she reconnects with a childhood friend. 

Looking through the lens of polygamy, ‘Open teaches viewers the full scope of these oftentimes taboo relationships. 

Listen as ICC CEO Xaviera chats with Essence and Keith about the film, their roles, and their thoughts on polygamy.
