A funny and intimate look at how people fall in love and what it takes to stay there, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do touches on the reality of the outside forces that can make or break a relationship. They say the truth will set you free, but when Shonda and Vince are armed with the truth, will they use it to set themselves free for once and for all? Written by Nikki Simpson

WINNER: Newark Black Film Festival
3 September 2010 | by alympikSee all my reviews

I saw this film at this years Newark Black Film Festival, where it won the festival's highest honor, the Best Long Narrative.

It is a romantic drama/comedy with plenty of both. Demetria McKinney, who plays Shonda, was absolutely fantastic in the role! Her emotional range is amazing. The story revolves around Shonda & Vince, a couple going through relationship issues and decide to go to counseling to see if they can save the relationship. In the middle of all this is Quincy, Shonda's son.

A wonderful film that makes you laugh (hysterically), cry, angry, sad and an entire spectrum of emotions the way films used to in the "golden era."
