The director Nisha Ganatra and crew brought a beautiful entertaining film about fulfilling your dreams. The story is about a famous singer's career, an aspiring singer and a personal assistant's dream of becoming a music producer. What a great beginning full of soul and no matter what preference of music one listens to, the rhythm will be felt. The movie could have been perfect if it wasn't for the romance part, and I don't mind a romantic film but it strays away from what the movie was about. The chain of events caused by the romance would have worked perfectly if it was a friendship since a relationship was needed due to the importance of what many artists cope with. Aside from forcing a romance, this movie was still powerful in projecting the struggles of deciding what you want and what society wants for you.
The composer Amie Doherty captured the conflict of reaching your dreams with her music. Also, the songs chosen for this movie was so uplifting, it's a movie to watch in a high volume to feel the outstanding boom.
The cast was perfect, performances to keep wanting more. Ice Cube is a natural in this kind of role and Kelvin Harrison Jr. was the one whom I was annoyed with but not because of his acting skills which were great, it was the romance part. Dakota Johnson! My gosh, the way she listens to music is like she is really feeling it and craves to make it better. She was amazing portraying the character who wants to be a music producer. Tracee Ellis Ross debut single was so beautiful and what a voice! Even though she has the name which makes some turn heads, she was still her own person and her performance was natural and real.
