.............saw it last nite. And, yes!, it was both “beautifully made” AND powerful.
I’m glad that Bison did not say more than what he did in the lead post^^^. I knew that the film was based on Ta-neihisi Coates’ (sp?) book, but that’s ALL I knew. Mrs. Strike had read the book as part of her all black women book club, and shared some enlightenment as I was watching the film.
Btw, there was a review of the film on NPR this morning, so it would be great if someone could post the link to that review here.
Bison, join the rest in thanking you for bringing this film to the board’s attention.
