User Reviews

A sweet slice of life portraying what it's like to be poor and Black with dreams
23 January 2021 | by goldenlampshadeSee all my reviews

I saw a lot of myself and my family in this movie which I appreciated the representation of. All the worry about money and Nichole Beharie having to jump through hoops and play the game to get her daughter ahead in life is what being a Black parent is all about, truly a excellent performance. Kai, her daughter, is extremely adorable and we can sense her inner dreamer ready to burst out when given the water and sunlight needed to flourish. She represents all of us children of immigrants or multiple generation African Americans who are finding their place in a world that has yet to make the space for them. Having to worry about getting full ride scholarships and juggling her love and inner truths is weighty stuff and she handles it all with grace and heart. So deserved of the Gotham award hopefully this awesome indie movie and Nikki get their dues down the like as well <3
