ComingSoon is excited to debut an exclusive 88 clip from the upcoming political thriller, which is out only in theaters on February 17. Directed by Eromose (Legacy), the movie stars Naturi Naughton (Fame), Orlando Jones (Abbott Elementary), Thomas Sadoski (John Wick), and Brandon Victor Dixon (The Best Man: The Final Chapters). It “investigates the divergence of race, money, power, and politics through the lens of a black family” and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year.
“When Femi Jackson (Dixon) the financial director for a Democratic super PAC behind a frontrunner presidential candidate discovers unusual patterns in donations, he enlists an investment blogger Ira Goldstein (Sadoski) to dig deeper,” says the synopsis. “As Femi’s wife Maria (Naughton) strives to educate their son on the dangers he will face in modern society while she fights racial and classist bias at work, Femi and Ira follow the campaign money trail back to its nefarious origins in a race to uncover the truth before the presidential primaries.”

88 also stars Michael Harney (Orange is the New Black), William Fichtner (Mom), Kelly McCreary (Grey’s Anatomy), Jon Tenney (Scandal), and Kenneth Choi (The Wolf of Wall Street). It has a runtime of 122 minutes.
