'The Color of Love' is a Lifetime movie that is all set to bring the family together this Easter, with the inspiring story of Monica Henderson (Deborah Joy Winans), an African-American widow who fights the system and society to provide two White siblings Peter and Rachel with a stable home. The film focuses on the many cracks in the foster care system and how Monica Henderson, propelled by great love, took them on for the sake of her foster children.

The film stars Deborah Joy Winans of 'Greenleaf' fame who says, "I loved this story. I think this is the kind of story we need in 2021. The power of love and what that looks like and that the color of love, has no color at all."

Canadian actor Michael Brown was discovered when he was still in high school, and was cast in the series 'Straight up!' in 1997. Since then, Brown has worked on films such as  'Four Brothers', 'Kevin Hill' and '1-800-Missing', sharing screen space with stars like Mark Wahlberg, Taye Diggs and Vivica A Fox. He has also worked on shows such as 'Being Erica'.


The film is being described by some as a reverse 'The Blind Side'. Winans has said that the most important part of the project for her was educating herself as to just how bad the foster system is and how many kids can fall through the cracks. The film is written by Tamara Bass who Winans has worked with before.


The trailer of the film shows that it's not just Monica Henderson played by Winans who opens her heart to Peter and Rachel, but also her two biological children who are keen to have them as part of their family. The trailer shows that not everyone though is so welcoming of Henderson's large-heartedness.
