Romantic and Positive

I have been waiting to see this movie forever. And I was not dissatisfied. This film is a rare gem. Why? It has a beautiful black actress in lead role that really resembles me not only in look but her values are similar to mine. And it paints black females in a realistic way versus the stereotypical loose desperate wounded black woman picture. Nicole Beharie was funny, intelligent, beautiful and inspiring in this movie. Ken Duken played the role of Nickolas to a t. He was genuine and vulnerable in the movie, which made me fall in love with his character. The movie has a positive message that says follow your heart and be true to yourself and others. This entails taking chances. Great and can be applied to any aspect in life- career, love, ambitions and so forth. I wish that more people would come out to support such a positive movie that uplifts the image of black females. Unfortunately, many are seeing stereotypical Baggage Claim.

I've actually already seen this film at two film festivals & chose to go see it again in theatres to support it. It's awesome for several reasons, Ken, Nicole, & the fact that it shows you that life isn't a fairy tale but LOVE IS. It's so much more than just a rom com. It's well worth a sit down & look. Oh & Nicole's voice is STUNNING!
