Black or White

A boozy widowed attorney (Kevin Costner) enters into a custody battle for his biracial granddaugter with the girl's ne'er-do-well father (Andre Holland) and his strong-willed mother (Octavia Spencer). Black or White is moralizing, wrongheaded, cliched, cloying tripe that written with the emotional sensibilities of an adolescent. As much as I appreciate Costner and writer/director Mike Binder, they totally miss the boat on this one.
