This was the most captivating, engaging and thoroughly enjoyable movie I have ever watched. The story grabs you and pulls you in and keeps you wondering what's going to happen next. This film is an \"original\" in every sense . .. this is NOT a formula movie. The music, the acting and the cinematography were all excellent ! See the movie and spread the word.

In a cinema landscape where the representation of the black female experience is most visibly explored through the modes of outlandish comedy, unironic melodrama, or not at all, Ava DuVernay's take is a decidedly refreshing one. Full Review
This is an elegant, powerfully emotional and courageous film, worth seeing entirely on its own artistic terms, and also for what it conveys about the complexity of African-American life and the resurgence of African-American cultural expression. Full Review
DuVernay, a low-key director sparing in her use of emotion and music, has made an existential drama that is European in its feel. Full Review
Nothing is easily resolved in this complex drama, which makes it all the more honestly moving. More than anything, this is a film about a woman on a journey of self-discovery, finding her way gingerly. Full Review
