The film, which is currently showing in theaters, tells the story of a grandfather (Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his granddaughter (Estell). When her grandmother (Spencer) seeks custody, the little girl is torn between two families who love her -- and they are all forced to confront real issues about about race and forgiveness.

"Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white," the movie synopsis reads.

Costner has a whole shelf of awards, including two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards and one Emmy Award.

He is celebrated by audiences everywhere for his roles in "The Untouchables," "Field of Dreams," "Dances with Wolves," "JFK," "The Bodyguard," "Man of Steel" and "Hatfield's and McCoys."

TUNE IN: Kevin Costner will stop by Good Day LA Tuesday morning to talk about his new movie, turning 60, the blessings of being a father and more.
