Rave reviews for this poignant film!
21 April 2017 | by rachel-bowieSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a thoughtful (and totally realistic) drama about an interracial family's transition from New York City to suburbia, look no further than this film. The expert storytelling delicately—and, at times, quite humorously—tackles the racial tensions that occur as they struggle to acclimate after their move, resulting in a timely and sensitive film that, at the core, is about a family just trying to do their best. I felt completely attached to every character in the film right off the bat. (A major credit to the nimble writing, directing and editing.) And while the story takes on a rather topical issue, it's the family narrative that will totally capture your heart. A must-watch!
