Till is a biographical drama film based on the true story of Mamie and Emmett Till. In 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till was lynched by a group of white supremacists after whistling at a white woman. His mother, Mamie, became a notable Civil Rights Activist and educator in the wake of her son’s murder.
The new movie from director/writer Chinonye Chukwu and co-writers Michael Reilly and Keith Beauchamp puts Mamie front and center, charting her dedicated journey for justice. Danielle Deadwyler plays the lead role of Mamie Till and has been receiving rave reviews for her dynamic and heart-wrenching performance.
Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Haley Bennett, and Whoopi Goldberg also star. Till made its world premiere at the New York Film Festival in early October and has received unanimous acclaim from critics so far.
Is Till on Netflix?
Unfortunately, Till is not available to stream on Netflix. There are other biographical drama films available on the service, such as Worth, Hillbilly Elegy, The Dirt, First They Killed My Father, My Best Friend Anne Frank, Father Stu, 8 Mile, and The Angel.
Where to watch Till
If you want to watch Till right now, your only option is to see the movie in theaters. Till was released in the United States by United Artists Releasing on October 14, while Universal Pictures will distribute the film in theaters in the United Kingdom on January 13, 2023.
Because Till is being distributed by United Artists Releasing and Universal Pictures, it’s tricky to say where it will eventually stream. Universal movies can move to Peacock as early as 45 days after cinematic release, but most recent United Artists movies have gone to Prime Video, so it seems like Till will stream on one or the other, or possibly both.
