"Family" finally
22 August 2010 | by fusion_usSee all my reviews

I thought this film was a wonderful portrayal of black lesbians attempting to find themselves in a world that was not made for them. It was an honest and heartfelt film that did not get caught up in glamour and drama to make up for a poor acting and plot. This film kept my attention and spoke to my truths as an out black lesbian. It was a very realistic depiction of what life is like for most black lesbians that are not of privilege. I own this film and to date it is the only one of its kind, as there are no other black lesbian films that have done what "Family" has done. Ms. Trimel is the future of black lesbian films, she is a trailblazer in her own right and I dare anyone to question that. As there are no films that have an all black female, let alone all black lesbian cast. Finally someone has addressed my concerns, and has depicted me in the truest form.
