A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to "find herself".
A mechanic (Elba) enlists the help of a successful-but-lonely attorney (Union) while trying to wrest custody of his three daughters from his treacherous ex-wife and her larcenous boy friend. Along the way, the working relationship between the blue collar dad and his uptown attorney grows into something more. This is a simple, touching story of two people trying to overcome their different backgrounds to find love, a down-on-his-luck man struggling to protect his children from abuse and neglect, and a community looking to purge itself from the criminals terrorizing their neighborhood.

When Monty and Julia arrive at the club, they appear to be driving down (and parking on) on a one-way street, as the cars are all parked in the same direction that Monty's car was traveling. However, the four-lane road they are on has a double-yellow line in the middle, indicating a two-way street. Also, in the wide shot as the car comes to a stop, there are signal lights and street identification signs placed in a manner where the flow of traffic on this "one-way street" would not be able to see them unless they were traveling in the opposite direction.

I saw this film recently at the Black Film Maker International Film Festival here in London.
Not at all like Perry's previous films which have both been premiered at the festival in the last few years. Instead of broad Christian Cross-Dressing Gun Totting Comedy, what we have here is a gentle romantic drama with a smattering of jokes here and there.
At got to say it wasn't to bad though I have to admit I preferred the Meadea films. The performances were OK especially the leading actors Union & Elba. The story is a bit hackneyed but I guess that's the cynic in me. You kind of knew exactly how the film was going to end from the open credits. The audience I saw it with loved it.
That got me thinking why can't you see Perry's work in the UK other than at the BFM Film Festival. Why not release the films on DVD, any visit to Dalston/Brixton/Harlesden in London will tell you that's there's a great illicit trade in Perry's films.
Anyway, if you like a undemanding and somewhat unoriginal romantic drama this is just the thing for you.
