Amandla Stenberg is best known for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games, and now she might be traveling from that dystopian future back to the 1940s for Amma Asante's new romantic period drama, Where Hands Touch. (We would make a joke about Doc Brown here, but it seems way too irrelevant.) Sternberg is in talks to star in the film about a relationship between a mixed-race German girl and an SS officer in Berlin. Director Amma Asante has been working on the script since before her 2013 film Belle, another rare romantic period drama with a black protagonist. Where Hands Touch will start shooting this summer.
