On the superhero movie spectrum, director Julia Hart's Fast Color appears to skew closer to the melancholy drama of Midnight Special than to the bombastic excess of Marvel and DC movies.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays a young woman who flees her family upon discovering she possess special powers, only to return years later when she learns the daughter she abandoned is similarly gifted.

Fast Color is in US cinemas March 29th but a UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Hunted by mysterious forces, a young woman (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) with supernatural abilities must go on the run when her powers are discovered. With nowhere else to go, she flees back to her family and the farmhouse she abandoned long ago. There, while being pursued by the local Sheriff (David Strathairn), she begins to mend the broken relationships with her mother (Lorraine Toussaint) and daughter (Saniyya Sidney) and learns that the power she needed was inside her all along.
