Customer Reviews

The dialogue was sparse.
Artiethebarber
It was low budgeted probably but even so: THIS MOVIE HAS A WHOLE LOT TO THINK ABOUT...how we do things as people and who we try so hard to please.

Very subtle (very effective).

I'm a huge fan of Danai Gurira, so when I saw that she was in this movie, I knew I had to watch it. She's a fabulous actress, author, and playwright. I disagree with one of the reviews about this movie being too dark and blurry. For me, it was just the opposite. It was a beautiful explosion of color, and the cinematography was a joy to watch.

This story revolves around Nigerian newlyweds who are unable to conceive after almost 2 years of marriage. The mother-in-law really pissed me off. She was the reason for all of the drama. So, here's the spoiler alert: If you plan on seeing this movie, you may want to stop reading...You're still here? Ok.

Something was seriously wrong with all of these weak-minded fools. The bride was unable to have a baby after only 18 months. Personally, I don't think that's a long time to try to have a baby. My husband and I spent years trying to conceive, and it can be a long process. The bride wasn't sure whether it was her or her husband who was at fault. Her husband refused to see a fertility specialist. I don't think this is a reason for a woman to sleep with her brother-in-law.

The mother-in-law was the first one to plant this wicked seed in the minds of the bride and the brother-in-law. She caused too much stress on the family by making the following suggestions. #1 that the husband should take another wife since the first one couldn't get pregnant. #2 The wife should screw her brother-in-law (the mother-in-law's other son) to try to get pregnant. #3 the bride should go back to Nigeria (they were currently living in NY) and leave her son alone. In the end, the bride and the brother-in-law agree to have sex (numerous times) to make a baby.

This family was sad, deceitful, and weak-minded.

A lot of the plot is realistic but one main one is not and would not happen in true life. the movie is enjoyable and most people from the country that the movie is supposed to portray would enjoy it others would also.

Made it to the halfway point and gave up in frustration and disappointment. Nice cinematography and vivid colors in the wardrobe, but I felt no connection whatsoever to the main character. Plus, the plot seemed disjointed and fragmented. Some scenes dragged on with no dialog and became boring to watch.

The actors performed well but there was not much character development. The lighting was very dim throughout most of the movie as well. I did enjoy seeing the traditional dress especially during the wedding scene.

After watching trailers for this movie, I thought there would be more depth to the plot. A bit disappointing, but still worth watching.

This film is slow but ultimately worthy of my time. What people consider "love" is complicated and this film certainly deals with that. I loved seeing a love story with black leads where their was no domestic violence. I enjoy actress Danai Gurira as Michonne on THE WALKING DEAD, but it was nice to see her without the sword. ;D Thumbs up.

Love the vivid colors used as well as showing how African preserving the culture within the social norms of New York, as well as the contrast with one who's gone astray, but yet still somewhat in touch with her roots. The acting was brilliant, I was on the edge of my sit until the end.
