Tonya Pinkins’ Thriller ‘Red Pill’ Puts A Frightening Lens On The 2020 Election
Exclusive: With the current state of the social and cultural landscape, perception of race as well as political climate, the 2020 election is going to be one hell of a ride — and Tonya Pinkins’ forthcoming film Red Pill looks to deliver those thrills.

Written, directed, produced and starring Tony award-winning actress Pinkins, Red Pill has nothing to do with The Matrix, where a physical red pill is taken to reveal unpleasant truths. Based on the teaser trailer above for Red Pill, the title refers to someone who infiltrates a group and destroys them from the inside. The political thriller sets itself as a wake-up call about American politics, putting a haunting spotlight on the weaponization of whiteness and White Supremacy as well as the waves of “Beckys” and “Karens” calling the police on Black people for simply being Black.
