Will Smith has always played different roles throughout various films. We don’t recall him playing quite a role such as this and it might be something a lot of people can relate to.
In Collateral Beauty, Smith is a successful New York advertising executive who goes through a tragic event and goes into a downward spiral. After isolating himself from his life, his friends try to help him get back on his feet and put the pieces of his life back together. In the movie, Smith’s character writes letters to “time,” “death” and “love” to cope with his grief.
The David Frankel-directed film is set to hit theaters December 16, 2016. It also stars the likes of Jacob Latimore, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Michael Peña, Kate Winslet.
