Kerry Washington Explains Why 'American Son' Is Such a Special Project

Kerry Washington is joined by co-star Steven Pasquale and director Kenny Leon for a special screening and Q&A for her film American Son on Tuesday (October 29) in New York City.

The 42-year-old actress starred in the play American Son on Broadway and she reunited with the cast to turn the project into a Netflix Television Event.

Here’s the film’s synopsis: Time passes and tension mounts in a Florida police station as an estranged interracial couple awaits news of their missing teenage son.

“It was so important for me to allow people the privilege of stepping into the lives of this family and being on this roller coaster ride with them,” Kerry recently told ET. “Because I think it gives us all an opportunity to reflect on who we are as a society right now, reflect on who we are in our marriages, in our homes with our kids and just take stock of where we’re at and how we’re doing.”

“It’s such a special project in that way, so to be able to be a producer and actor in the project just allows me to be extra proud,” she added.

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Missoni outfit.
