The Architect


The Architect is a harrowing and ultimately human story of two very different families.

Leo Waters (Anthony Lapaglia) is an idealistic architect and patriarch of an affluent, suburban Chicago family.

Tonya Neeley (Viola Davis) is a pragmatic activist who is trying to keep her family together while living in one of the city’s most drug and crime-infested public housing projects.

As part of her ongoing campaign to have the project torn down and decent housing built in its place, Tonya decides that the one signature she needs more than any other on her petition is that of the projects’ original architect, Leo Waters.
