A must see movie; for sure. Wished it had been marketed better.
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Went to see movie in Detroit because my daughters wrote the lead song "No Love", written by Anesha and Antea Birchett. Even though the last name was spelled wrong for Antea (spelled it Birches :-(( I must say the movie is a must see for younger people (and older adults) growing up today facing the inner city struggles of peer pressure, and things that can "knock you off your square". In fact Parents if you want to score big see it with your kids. I am a job developer in the inner city of Detroit working with young adults referred by the Michigan Dept. of Human Services. I'm hoping to be able to show this movie (as required viewing) to our participants in a workshop. I give it a 10 just because of the unexpected twist that I totally didn't see coming.
