This trailer is not inspiring me to run out to the movie theater but I would watch it on NETFLIX and hope I could make it to the end. As an aside I don't believe black people are obligated to support artistic endeavors simply out of race solidarity. I follow SHADOW & ACT and have shared it with friends because it exposes me to films by and about black folks that I don't get from most media. (The NETFLIX finds are much used and appreciated) That said every black movie is not my cup of tea, and no one should have that expectation seeing as the same applies to movies in the mainstream.


Meh. Not a fan of the dialogue Brian White's acting in general.

Screen Nation

Really good to finally see something of this film as we know how tough it must have been to get it made. Its especially pleasing to see how far African independent finance can take a picture. We look forward to watching the success of this film. Leila does it again and keeps making Ghana proud.


Looks good to me. if Tyler Perry had not poisoned the entire drink glass, I would probably be super excited to see this. But I have hope and will check it out !
