I love watching this movie, it's an amazing film. Julia Stiles did a great job in this movie! Great chemistry with Sean Patrick Thomas, he also did a great job on acting. This movie is so true, I mean their are lots of black and white couples, and their's lots of racism in this world, and I think it doesn't matter what color you are! I love this movie, and it's moving, and intelligent. Over all this movie is great, great acting, great plot, directing, amazing people to play the roles, and probably one of the best movies I've seen in years. Great job and making the movie, to the people who actually made the movie, so great job people! 8/10
