This is a powerful story of a powerful individual trying to maintain a committed relationship. Derek and Ruby are in a relationship and suddenly Derek is incarcerated. Ruby visits him regularly and makes a point to keep the relationship going and get Derek before the parole board for his release. At the parole board hearing Ruby gets a rude awakening. The most significant change in the film to me is Derek's growing interest in maintaining a committed relationship. Ava DuVernay writes full, complex, rich Black male characters that need to be seen more on film. -RF.

I thought the movie was very good. The story was not a feel good story so don't expect a Hollywood feel good ending. The film by Ava DuVernay is about a young med student and her incarcerated husband. Well filmed, understated and beautifully told cinema. Great acting, writing and directing. The music was incredible and well placed. Solid editing.

One of the best movies I've sen in a long time. The story is somewhat complicated, but it puts a spotlight of what happens when your world you know is turned upside down. Are you emotionally stuck? Do you hold on to the past? Do you try to put the past behind you, and try to make a change - your mind says yes, but your heart says no - to could change the course of your future? The acting was phenomenal! Some real life lesson here. What would YOU do? Go see this film; you won't be disappointed.
