Blackbird is Mo’Nique’s first film since she won an Oscar for her riveting performance in Precious.
During a recent interview, Mo discussed the film and how she became a part of the project.
It’s about a young brother coming of age…trying to deal with his sexuality…trying to deal with religion…trying to deal with friendship. They’re dealing with suicide. We’re dealing with marriage.
There’s so much with this movie and the dynamic of how one family has to deal with this young man being gay.
Watch below as Mo’Nique talks about Blackbird.

Blackbird opens in theaters on April 24.
