I Thoroughly Enjoyed this Film
6 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Coming out stories for gays and lesbians are nothing new, for those of African descent, it's virgin territory, and I believe so necessary. The heavy themes of coming out are dealt with in this film but there is levity as well. I thought the acting showed maturity and range by all the actors. I especially enjoyed the ensemble of BFF's who supported and harangued each other until the very end. A beautiful cast, full of non-stop eye candy was nice, too (call me shallow). I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It was so entertaining with such touching moments and hilarious moments reaching a comfortable equilibrium. For an obviously low-budget indie, it capitalized on depth and eloquence. I bought a copy so I could watch it over and over again.
