Look Both Ways Release Date

The movie is set to release on August 17th, 2022. Look Both Ways will have a runtime of 1 hour and 50 minutes. CatchLight Studios’ Jessica Malanaphy signed on as one of the producers behind the upcoming film. The trailer of the movie is also available on YouTube.


According to the official Netflix synopsis:

On the eve of her college graduation, Natalie’s life diverges into two parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and must navigate motherhood as a young adult in her Texas hometown, the other in which she moves to LA to pursue her career. In both journeys throughout her twenties, Natalie experiences life-changing love, devastating heartbreak and rediscovers herself.

There is not much about the plot of the movie yet. However, director Wanuri Kahiu said about the project:

It is an incredible story about women’s resilience. On the one hand, it is a story about a young mother. A young single mother, who is trying to figure out how her life works and how she pursues her passion. On the other hand, it is a story about a young artist doing everything that she can to get a break in the industry that is so hard to get into as a young woman. On both sides, it is about women striving for excellence and that is what drew me to it. Either through motherhood or artistry, it is about women striving for excellence. That is the most important thing and that is the big takeaway and why I wanted to be part of the project.


Lili Reinhart will be playing the lead role of Natalie. Danny Ramirez will be playing Gabe. Luke Wilson, Nia Long, Andrea Savage, and Aisha Dae are also part of the cast of the upcoming movie.
