About Montclair Film Festival | THE INSPECTION
Inspired by his own story, Elegance Bratton’s deeply moving THE INSPECTION is the story of a young, gay Black man named Ellis (Jeremy Pope, in a stunning performance). Rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, Ellis decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside. But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life. Elegance Bratton’s THE INSPECTION is a searing portrait of a hard-won self-discovery and is the Montclair Film Festival’s 2022 Breakthrough Film.
