Black or White tells the moving story of Elliot Anderson (Costner), a widowed man who turns to drinking to cope with the loss of his wife. He still manages to care for his granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell), but when her grandmother, Rowena (Octavia Spencer), insists that she be raised by her own father (Rowena's son), Elliot gets involved in a custody battle to protect his grandchild from her drug-addicted father.

The movie also stars Gillian Jacobs, Jennifer Ehle, Anthony Mackie and Bill Burr. Black or White was also written and directed by Mike Binder.

Despite its low score on Rotten Tomatoes, quite a few critics have praised the movie for its powerful message and strong performances. For instance, critic Susan Granger called it "another subtle reminder of how much racial bigotry matters." Meanwhile, Richard Crouse wrote that the movie included "several of [Kevin Costner's] best on-screen moments in years."
