I give this movie a solid 8.5/10
Please Black women, support this film. I'm slightly irritated that 12 Years a Slave has received the majority of attention (because it's male centered and directed) when, to be quite honest, this film was better in quality!
I can compare the 2 because they both deal with the topic of slaverly, this film in a much more subtle way and flowed much easier
I dislike how the initial preview presented this film to be a love story--which it is but it's so much more than that
Very rarely do we ever get to see a film released nationwide that is both directed, produced and starring a Black female.
