Why the US will nonetheless be on time in opposition to Billie Vacation 40 years from now, Lee Daniels stated
I did not know it [the film would be released one year after the Emmet Till Antilynching Act passed the House] when we started filming. I didn’t know that and it’s not in Susan Laurie Park’s script. I found that out when we were making the film. So i can’t believe it You can’t make it up. You can’t make this up. And on top of that, you can’t have this noose that was in the capital – people say this film is topical at the moment. Yes it is on time now, it was on time 20 years ago, but I think this country is so messed up and we are in such a dark place that we are only right in the eyes of the darkness we are in watch. In 20 years it will be on time, in 40 years it will be on time. It will take our grandchildren as we do the work to get better as a nation.
