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

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.

Great movie about finding ones self
21 September 2018 | by cameronterrell-91186See all my reviews

This isn't a movie just about hair. This movie is about a women who finds herself. It's a movie based on upon the deconstruction of African-American women fitting in to societal standards of what beauty is. The hair is a metaphor for African-American women who continuebeing someone they are not. By cutting her her she found out more about herself and her culture/ancestral roots. She freed all worries, stress, and anxieties that has been placed upon her shoulders. It's similar to the song by India.Arie "I am not my hair."
