Netflix’s Adaptation of 'American Son' Doesn’t Have a Happy Ending (SPOILERS)

By

A new film is coming to Netflix and it seems like it’s going to be quite an emotional ride. American Son is based on the Broadway play by the same name. It was written by Christopher Demos-Brown and tells the story of a mother who is trying to find out what happened to her missing 18-year-old son. Before going into the film, you might wonder — what’s the ending of American Son? We have that info for you here. Spoilers abound, obviously.

What is American Son about?

A timely tale practically ripped from the headlines, American Son tells the story of Kendra Ellis-Connor (Kerry Washington) as she waits to hear what has happened to her mixed-race son, Jamal. The entire play (as well as the Netflix adaptation) takes place in a single room at a South Florida police station.
