Movie Fact #807 – July 9th, 2015:

The relationship in 2014’s “Beyond the Lights” between the character Noni Jean (Played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and her mother was inspired by director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s relationship with her biological mother who she met in her 20’s and how she imagined their relationship would have been if her mother had not given her up for adoption. Emotional fuel from real life is the greatest lighter you could ask for to start a fire in a story. It breaks the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction and entraps the audience in an emotional trance they can’t deny they will relate to.
