REVIEW

Issa Rae is a burgeoning actress. She has a wonderful onscreen personality. LaKeith is her male counterpart in may ways. Their chemistry and hesitance in their romance was fun to watch. Fairly simple plot with a great soundtrack. Written and directed by Stella Meghie, the film is a gentle and attentive inter-generational tale with a first-rate cast. We recommend this movie.
