I loved this movie. A great "inspiration" filled with hope! Cuba was excellent and Beyonce was both beautiful and compelling. What makes a movie like this work is the "realality" of the script and the "power of the performers! The love scenes between Cuba and Beyonce were fill with passion. I think that the "religious tone" of the movied added to it's significance. This movie was being real. The church is as relevant to our times as any other part of society.
We need to see more movies like this coming from Hollywood. In light of the tragic conditions that we face in the world, this movie can help bring about a "spark" of light and hope.
To the writers and directors, keep up the good work!
