First of all you don't need to like rap music in order to like this movie, i really enjoyed the tracks but it goes far beyond music! The plot is not like extremely original or twisted, but it feels like everything just fits together. Whats just amazing here, is the character development! I believed all the feelings the characters had and the reactions to different situations, which also requires good acting!
Filly Brown is a movie with a lot of love, heart, passion and great music!
I do not understand the 4,8 rating at all, read the other reviews here and watch yourself!
