Usher & Forest Whitaker Share a Laugh at 'Burden' Atlanta Screening

Usher and Forest Whitaker have a moment at a screening of their film Burden!

The co-stars, ages 41 and 58, respectively, hit the red carpet at the event held at The Plaza Theatre on Monday (March 2) in Atlanta.

They were joined by their castmates including Crystal Fox, writer/director Andrew Heckler, and more.

Also in attendance were rappers T.I., Lil Yachty, and Jermaine Dupri, as well as Usher‘s mom Jonetta Patton.

Here’s the synopsis for Burden, currently in select theaters: “When a museum celebrating the Ku Klux Klan opens in a small South Carolina town, the idealistic Reverend Kennedy (Whitaker) resolves to do everything in his power to prevent long-simmering racial tensions from boiling over. But the members of Kennedy‚Äôs congregation are shocked to discover that his plan includes sheltering Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund), a Klansman whose relationships with both a single-mother (Andrea Riseborough) and a high-school friend (Usher) force him to re-examine his long-held beliefs.”

It continues, “After Kennedy helps Mike leave behind his violent past, the Baptist preacher finds himself on a collision course with manipulative KKK leader Tom Griffin (Tom Wilkinson). In the face of grave threats to himself and his family, the resolute Kennedy bravely pursues a path toward peace, setting aside his own misgivings in the hopes of healing his wounded community.” Watch the trailer.
