« On the eve of her university graduation, Natalie [Reinhart] life diverges into parallel realities: one in which she gets pregnant and stays in her hometown, and another in which she doesn’t and moves to Los Angeles,” the official description reads. « In both journeys, Natalie experiences life-changing love, pursues her dream career as an artist, and rediscovers herself. »
Playing Natalia in two parallel realities might seem tricky, but Reinhart says it didn’t turn out to be the case.
« The circumstances of her life were changing, but she was still the same woman in both scenarios, » she says. « I think the film is really beautiful in that it shows how your life can unfold in a thousand and one different ways, » she says. « You have to be open to new paths that present themselves…there’s no right or wrong way to get anywhere. So trust that the universe is protecting you.
Director Wanuri Kahiu says, « My ‘Look Both Ways’ moment was when I was standing with a pregnancy test. At that moment, I realized that I had made the choice to have a child and [knew] that my life from then on would divide and be radically different from what I had imagined for myself.

The film also stars Danny Ramirez, David Corenswet, Aisha Dee, Andrea Savage, Luke Wilson, and Nia Long.
“Look Both Ways” will premiere on August 17.
