Gina Prince Bythewood comes of age
6 August 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

Finally this movie has arrived in the United Kingdom after much good reviews from the United States.

Snipes and Lathan give great performances. Director Bythewood certainly keeps the movie at the right pace, hard to believe this is her second picture after "Love and Basketball" We should all expect great things from her in the future. I enjoyed this having read the book by Terry Macmillan. Beautifully shot and acted, could have done with deeper roles for John Amos and CCH Pounder but above all a good picture. 8/10
