It’s been over five years since Mo’Nique has appeared on the big screen and now, she has come roaring back in the Patrik – Ian Polk film, Blackbird.   

Blackbird tells the story of Randy Rousseau (played by newcomer Julian Walker), a 17-year old who loves the Lord, (he gives new meaning to the command to pray without ceasing), sings in the church choir and is a friend and caretaker for all, including his emotionally unstable mother, Claire (Mo’Nique).
