In the wake of Green Book’s Oscar success, just got word of a movie focusing on an even unlikelier friendship. The Best of Enemies, scheduled to be released April 5, is the story of how civil rights activist Ann Atwater (Taraji P. Henson) and KKK leader C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell) met, fought, and eventually become friends, creating an unlikely alliance to deal with a local desegregation issue. Here’s an early behind-the-scenes look at the movie.
“The same God that made you made me,” Henson’s character says in the clip. She and Rockwell have always had some serious film charisma, and seeing them both together looks like it’ll be a treat. Looking forward to this one.
