Melinda Moore (Ajiona Alexus & Taraji P. Henson) tries to fulfill her parent's dream of obtaining a college education. On her way home from studying, Melinda runs into Robert Gayle (Antonio Madison & Lyriq Bent), and the two develop a fast friendship. As their relationship develops at the dismay of Melinda's meddling family, will the couple live happily ever after, or will their behavior tear them apart?
Writer-director Tyler Perry (Good Deeds, For Colored Girls, The Family That Preys) delivers a surprisingly nuanced thriller with Acrimony. The cinematography, script and story are all first rate, which allows the actors to shine and deliver outstanding performances.
Ajiona Alexus lights up the screen as the younger version of Melinda, while Taraji P. Henson delivers a true descent into madness with her portrayal of the older, present-day Melinda. Lyriq Bent as the mature Robert becomes more of a sympathetic character than the viewer might have expected due to his excellent ability to embody Robert's humanity.
Make no mistake - the film is not high art, nor does it pretend to be. We are treated to a bleak depiction of human nature as well as an honest portrayal of mental illness. Fortunately, Mr. Perry has an excellent sense of humor - even at their most depraved, the characters manage to make us guffaw with laughter.
As thrillers go, Acrimony officially enters the Hollywood hall of fame as one of the slickest, nastiest, and most hilarious films of 2018 - quite an achievement for a movie filmed in only eight days.
