Storyline

Violet Jones (Lathan) doesn't realize it at first but she's dismayed by her superficial, "perfect" life. She has everything she thought she'd need - a successful career, friends and a boyfriend who is a handsome doctor (Whittle). When her fairy tale begins to unravel, so does she. This movie shows what a beautiful, smart, successful woman can do when she starts to look inward instead of outward! Written by Kim Poulton

Quotes

Violet: Listen, women can wear weaves if they want to. They can straighten their hair if they want to. It's a choice. There's nothing wrong with that. But we also need them to know that there is beauty in their natural hair.

Black Hair Matters
21 September 2018 | by alexwebb32See all my reviews

Someone else questioned how they could make a movie about a woman's hair. Well, they didn't. This movie isn't about one woman's hair. This movie is about black women's hair, and what it's like for black women to live in a world where they're stigmatized because of their hair. Where they're considered unprofessional and uncivilized if they don't straighten it.

I guess you have to actually be a black woman to relate to this film. But you shouldn't have to be a black woman to be able to empathize with black women. When the world is the way it is, we need movies like this. Black women need movies like this. Black women deserve movies like this.

Also, you know, it's a sweet and heartwarming movie, it goes places and doesn't end the way you think. I liked it.
