Noughts and Crosses

Summary:

Set in a dangerous, alternate world where racism divides society, Noughts + Crosses follows two young star-crossed lovers at the intersection of the Black ruling class and the white underclass in a dystopian society divided by color; together, they face a world of violence, oppression and loss. From The Independent (UK): “…apt a time in which racist discourse is increasingly normalised in the shadow of Trump and Brexit.”

From Joel Keller at Decider:

Noughts + Crosses has its issues, but the cast is compelling to watch and we hope that some of its obviousness will get smoothed out as we get more into the actual story. Full Review
