A Sleeper for the Academy Awards
21 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day, directed by Neema Barnette, is a powerful movie that compels audience members to rethink the view others before looking at themselves. From the onset, this film grabs your attention with the heartfelt performances of Blair Underwood, Sharon Leal, Pamela Grier, Reed McCants. Having been filmed in New Orleans, a powerful cast of locals were tapped into including Nicoya Banks, Jaqueline Fleming, Zoe Carter, and Jamie Alyson Uribe to name just a few of the outstanding performances from the talent pool. Make the time to see this film while it is on the big screen. It's worth watching more than once as I look forward to the DVD release. I just hope that Neema, Blair, and Sharon aren't overlooked when it is time for the Academy Awards to nominate.
