The actress plays the mother of a reclusive hip hop prodigy in the upcoming Netflix film, also starring Anthony Anderson.
Emmy-winning actress, Uzo Aduba, has proved her acting chops yet again in the intense trailer for Netlfix's "Beats."
The coming-of-age film follows a teen from Chicago—played by newcomer Khalil Everage—who just so happens to be a hip hop prodigy who makes beats in his room. He's mostly withdrawn from the outside world however, until a school security guard, played by Black-ish's Anthony Anderson tries to get him out of his shell in order to share his musical gift with the world.
We see Aduba give a stoic performance as the young protagonist's protective mother.
