I must admit that when I sat down in the movie theater to see "Trois" I didn't quite know what to expect. What with a title like "Trois" which is short for ménage à trois, I was preparing myself to both be shocked and a little thrilled at the love scenes. While I did get that thrilling love scene that I was expecting I also got much more, the chance to see black folk in a complex movie role. I have grown tired of us always being cast as the comedian or the bad person on the silver screen and this movie is a breath of fresh air in that it explores one on one relationships between black folk. While this movie left a lot to be desired in the area of cinematography and acting, it is the right step toward more black dramas. We've got to start somewhere.
