Why does Sony’s State of Play matter? Well, as the war over coronavirus wages on, so too, does the stand against racism. Where the hashtag black lives matter has become a symbolic sentiment worldwide, one used more prevalently than perhaps ever before.
So, with humanity fighting the war on two fronts, the looming threat of an economic downturn, and political division. But also, the fear of social insecurity and unrest, some form of distraction from these uncertain times would not go a miss.
All things considered.
Besides, thanks to the worldwide containment effort, Coronavirus should only affect those nations silly enough to lift the lockdown too soon. At the same time, police reform is a serious problem. And a delicate matter deserving of compassion.
