I haven't seen the film but I plan on it. It's so nice to see more black actresses getting an opportunity to shine! It's in this way that racial equality can truly come to pass. When black people see themselves (as they really are and not an idealized version or a version that "others" think we are) only good can come.

Great interview. A.O. gives a tremendous performance. She's clearly on the rise.
On another note, this "home video" style interview is hilarious and amusing in a certain way; it says a lot about how technology, the web, audience interaction, viewership has totally changed. Case and point: that dude pops in mid-way and say "2 minutes" smack in the middle of a 'press junket'. And as a viewer/user, it looks and feels like the 8mm video days with a Sony Camcorder-aesthetic to boot.
