Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has a seemingly perfect life — a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend, and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn’t go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted. (Via Rotten Tomatoes)
My Review: This was a movie I thoroughly enjoyed all the way through. The message was important and very relatable for all black women. All women would enjoy this movie also but, black women journey with their hair will draw them more to this movie. I think the acting was ‘okay’ by the cast. I love that the main characters are black or a minority. I love that the message of this movie correlates to what little and adult black women have to go through with their hair. This movie plays on a lot of stereotypes of the black women about their hair. I think the storyline should have been a little stronger. There was no climax the movie sort of just flowed through the whole time. It was sort of predictable. I hated the ending because it was extremely subpar. All In All, I am not necessarily sure that I would recommend this movie because it did not exceed my expectations at all. but, if you’re bored and need something to watch this can be it!
