I’m trying to figure out whether it’s a good or bad thing that its opening on Christmas Day, mostly because the blockbusters will overtake it. I suppose the niche audience(s) for the film will help it win out though…even if it’s not the first week.


I think people should be more concerned about the film reaching a black audience than whether it will get an Oscar nomination. It is about time in the year 2011 that the black lesbian experience reach a black audience. Black lesbians encounter multiple forms of oppression from the black, white, and queer communities.


Just happy this film is coming out. I hope people take notice of them film. Like they did Precious. And maybe an Oscar nom or few. Because any publicity for it would be good.


That wasn’t the one I voted for. In fact, I don’t remember this one. But I like it. I thought this was one of the best films I saw this year so far. Congrats to Dee Rees and Nekisa Cooper. They’re awesome ladies.

I really want to see this.


The yellow was better but whatever, the movie coming out is all that matters.


Great article on The Emergence of Black Gay Cinema:


The trailer was playing before a packed house of a showing of “The Debt” I attended yesterday. That’s big time.


Oooh! Like! Can’t wait!
