Many times I sit down to watch a movie with black actors in Lead parts and I come away feeling robbed. That's usually because the movie gets into typical stereotypes of what black life is like. If its not the typical stereotypes, then its the same cast of actors and actresses. Also I get sick of the segregation in movies. The real world is full of Black, White, Asians, Indians, Russians and so on that are friends. However, when you go to the movies, you find segregated cast. This movie is refreshing because it doesn't follow some typical patterns. First, the actors are from quite a few races and I like that! Second, its good to see Black talent in a leading role of a script that is good. Not to mention, the direction, plot, rising and falling action of this suspense drama are all very well done. I hope to see movies continue to break the stereotypical patterns that movies follow. Don't believe me, watch the movie for herself.
