Seventeen year-old Ayanna meets handsome and mysterious Isaiah in her path toward self-discovery. Her entire world is turned upside down as she travails on the rigorous terrain of young love in the summer before she leaves for college.
Set against the backdrop of a changing Harlem landscape, when seventeen year old Ayanna meets handsome and mysterious outsider Isaiah, her entire world is turned upside down on her path towards self-discovery as she travails the rigorous terrain of young love the summer before she leaves for college.
I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful love story! Green's directing is confident and nuanced. Zora Howard gives a great performance, and I very much related to the up's and down's of young love that Ayanna experiences. I felt that the characters were multifaceted and complex and enjoyed seeing Harlem and its richness depicted with such beauty on screen.
