Trivia

The word "passing" as it is used for the title of this movie and of the Nella Larsen novel on which is it based is a reference to the practice of members of minority or oppressed races, religions, ethnic groups, etc., pretending to be white (or otherwise members of the majority culture) to escape prejudice. The writer/director of this movie, Rebecca Hall, is better-known as an actress; although she has overwhelmingly been cast as white women, she is part African American. In a 2018 interview with Deadline, Hall said, "I came across the novel at a time when I was trying to reckon creatively with some of my personal family history, and the mystery surrounding my bi-racial grandfather on my American mother's side. In part, making this film is an exploration of that history, to which I've never really had access." See more »
