Storyline

The beginning and end of the relationship between the physical beings of William Ward, a black man, and Venus Ward née Redhawk, a Native American, is presented. The end is marked by Venus' passing, about which William makes no medical intervention based on Venus' wishes. This lack of action places a strain between William and Venus' young adult son, Ricky, and William. In the aftermath, William displays some behavior which Ricky finds unusual, William stating it all having to do with Venus, making Ricky believe that William is becoming unhinged in denying his mother's death. These actions, all based on William indeed searching for Venus - his "Juliet" - become all the more clear as the beginning of their relationship is presented starting in the early 1970s. They initially meet during an audition as Juliet in a fundraising production of Romeo and Juliet, with Venus, who deeply feels and truly does understand the works of William Shakespeare, trying to break the color barrier in acting...

Beautiful Film, Inside and Out
1 October 2014 | by jimsykora305See all my reviews

As one would expect from Director Norry Niven, this film is visually stunning. Each scene composed and shot for magnificent visual effect. Watch the film carefully and you will see lensing and coloring that put you in different Cinematic time frames appropriate for each scene. But the love story that is threaded through the film strikes a variety of emotional chords that make you want to laugh, cry, scream out triumphantly or just contemplate the moment. Danny Glover is amazing, as always, with his role as the romantic lead, looking back on a life filled with the cherished memories and hard realities of true love between an interracial couple. Veteran Graham Greene also turns in an amazing performance as does most everyone in this delicate and complex film. It is a heart warming story, perfect for those times when you need a good soul-cleansing cinematic experience.
