Think while watching...
1 September 2016 | by DNight100See all my reviews

The film uses Christian symbols, quotes (Bible), and various references to God, while exposing human hypocrisy, lies, and the "dark" around us. It's a story about two sisters (black girl and white girl), growing up in Cleveland, surrounded by violence, hatred, crime, drugs, and poverty. Thanks to some good (Christian) people, the girls grow up to be semi-normal (one clearly suffers from an unknown psychological disorder, while the other one has issues on her own). This provocative drama could be labeled as "Christian film with an edge"; the edge being: uncensored language that breaks PC (political correctness) as we know it. I see some people turning off their TVs or leaving the theater, because those N-words or F-words might be too much to handle. All in all, I find this to be an interesting movie; one that I wouldn't recommend to an average movie buff (it ain't no "Wizard of Oz" or "Fast and Furious"). It's a movie that requires some thinking… a lot of THINKING.
