A ride back to Harlem in the 1930's.
12 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This film with an all-star cast does a great job of giving you the feel of Harlem 1939. It centers around the lives of 4 women, their relationships and how they eventually broke apart from each other. There is serious talent in the film and it's actors do a great job. I long for the days when you could enjoy a film with black actors and no rappers! Once the 1940's begun the women strove to make their lives better though they were already doing quite well. It winds up tearing them apart from their friends, the very people who you want to be with when you're at the top.
