This is the crème de la crème of Tyler Perry’s movies. His best work thus far. Very, very, well written. Heart pounding and heart wrenching at the same time. Thought provoking. The movie delved into the African American and the American experience. Don’t want to give away to much. Amirah Vann, my favorite villainess from other shows (How to Get Away With Murder and Queen Sugar) is amazing. What a voice. Never knew she could sing like that. All the other actors were superb as well. The ensemble was perfect. The scenery, music and choreography fantastic This is a must see. This is a movie that you can watch over again.
FELT MORE LIKE LIMITED SERIES THAN A PACKED FILM…!
A current Netflix release written & directed by Tyler Perry (my first film of his I’ve ever watched, someone pop a cork on some ripple somewhere?). Told in flashback from the present where a white politician in the South is mounting a campaign, a series of letters soon arrive at his doorstep which prompts the story proper to be told as the letters are read. Focusing on a family who run a juke joint, we have a pair of brothers (sired from different fathers) one, Joshua Boone, an accomplished singer while his brother, Austin Scott, (favored by the still present drunk of a father) a master behind the trumpet which comes to a pass when their mother, Amirah Vann, tends to favor Boone, giving him leeway at every turn & to make matters worse is Boone’s burgeoning relationship w/a light skinned girl, Solea Pfeiffer, who’s own mother hopes to pass her off as white wants no part in having her daughter’s romance w/Boone so she concocts a ruse to have them separated insinuating Boone was inappropriate w/her sending Boone packing to Chicago to forcefully follow his dreams along w/Scott (who’s developing a heroin habit) & their manager, Ryan Eggold (from TV’s Amsterdam) but years pass & when unanswered letters (from Boone to Pfeiffer) & an opportunity to visit come up, the drum beat of fate starts a-tapping as the tragedy we know is coming arrives. As stated previously, this is my first foray into Perry’s world (the trailer looked good but hey don’t they all!) as a writer/director & while his story is laudable (I heard in an interview it was a story he wrote years ago but sat on for years until he felt it could be made properly) I felt maybe a limited series (he has several running on the OWN network) may’ve been a better avenue for this yarn which has many characters, situations & truths unfolding which diminishes the film’s power since a lot of story points/decisions by certain players were sped along just to get to that gut wrenching finale.
