Paula Patton has no time for games or threats in the upcoming BET+ original film Sacrifice.
The actress plays Los Angeles entertainment lawyer Daniella Hernandez in the thriller by Chris Stokes.
“Secrets are currency to me,” Hernandez warns in the trailer released Wednesday by BET.
A female district attorney tells Hernandez to stay out of her way, warning: “Don’t think we’re finished with this dance.”
The powerhouse attorney isn’t intimidated and fires back, “I love to dance.”
