Summary of the movie: Fed up with her life, a woman leaves her grown kids behind and hits the road in search of a fresh start.
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!

Finding good content on Netflix can be hard. There a lot of movies on Netflix that are just a waste of time. The movies down below are movies that I highly recommend!
#1 What happened to Monday?
This movie is definitely one of Netflix hidden gems. This movie is a drama/thriller and very interesting all the way through! One of Netflix best films!
#2 Thor Ragnarok
I would highly recommend watching Thor: The God of Thunder and Thor: The dark world First. Also, I would say you don’t have to like superheroes movies to watch this but, if you do it would certainly help. Thor movies is to me is the best of Marvel movies! Also people watch Thor alone just for Chris Hemsworth (Thor) but I definitely watch for Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and also because its really good & funny!
This movie is really different from the normal movies. But, it is really interesting and the message is really bold & good! Also, Will Smith is the main character so the movie is automatically good right? YES!!
OKAY SO THIS MOVIE IS EXTREMELY EMOTIONAL AND SAD! I CRIED THE FIRST THREE MINUTES OF THE MOVIE AND I AM NOT EMOTIONAL AT ALL!!!! This movie is based on a true story. Also, if you don’t like movie with subtitles this is not the movie for you. But, trust me its really GOOD!
#5 Roxanne Roxanne
This movie is raw, real, and powerful and telling the true story of Shante. The acting in this film is some of the best acting I have ever seen!
