Thoroughly Enjoyable
30 May 2020 | by pinklarpSee all my reviews

Great cast, great story, Tracee Ellis Ross has a powerful voice especially in a duet with Kelvin Harrison Jr. He and Dakota Johnson have nice chemistry and give insight into the world of music producers and talent. Dakota and Ross characters both dealing with breaking away from other people's plans for them. Nice fashion, cars, ponytails. Light hearted, no violence, not preachy. Film industry needs to make more of these feel good films. Especially now.
