Angela Bassett featured in Close to the Enemy an Acorn TV Original | Premiered November 14
Angela Bassett plays a sultry Piano/Lounge singer in what looks to be an action packed espionage drama. Can’t wait to see Angela spread her wings again as her often under-utilized acting ability is on display in the trailer. As in times past black performers had to seek artistic fulfillment on other shores, nothing different here as Angela is actually living her characters journey by filming this project in the UK.
An all-star cast including Jim Sturgess, Alfred Molina, Angela Bassett, Alfie Allen, Lindsay Duncan, Charlotte Riley, and August Diehl anchors this lavish British drama set in a bomb-damaged London hotel during the aftermath of WWII. Intelligence officer Callum Ferguson (Sturgess) must complete his last task for the British Army: convince captured German scientist Dieter Koehler (Diehl) to work with the British government.
