A flawed pic with a good heart and sense of humor.
15 June 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Mixing Nia" tells of a "color blind" half black, half white New York City career woman who wrestles with her identity in a race conscious world. A light drama with "low budget indie" written all over it, "Mixing Nia" is flawed but manages a nominally good story, screenplay, and script. A little flick whose heart is in the right place and a good stop for channel surfers.
