Storyline

Jay Brooks is that black guy who digs indie rock, graphic novels, and dates white chicks. After a slew of bad break-ups, Jay gives up white women, "cold turkey," and he goes on a mission: "Operation Brown Sugar". But because Jay doesn't fit the "brotha" stereotype, he fails miserably with the "sistahs." Then he meets the dynamic Catherine, a misunderstood "Half-rican Canadian", who's as righteously quirky as he is. To win her heart, Jay must confront his fears as he realizes commitment is a bigger issue than race. Written by Anonymous

Amazing film that won't stop winning awards.
11 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this film in the theaters last weekend at the Hollywood Black Film Festival where it won best feature. This is no surprise as movie executives were emailing their offices while watching the film in the theater regarding distributing the picture to theaters and DVD. The script is captivatingly funny and you become really drawn into the characters. Lead actress Lia Johnson (who also is a producer on the film) was engaging and stole every scene she was in. I had seen the film prior during earlier cuts and noticed that there is a huge difference seeing it in theaters. The patrons were completely drawn in. For those of you who do not know, it is a romantic comedy about a black man who never dated a black woman and now essentially swears off of white women to see if he truly is color struck. The social commentary is there, but it is fun. Go see it immediately.
