    The film sets up each subplot and as an audience member, you’re thoroughly invested in it because of how likable these women are. They are portrayed more than characters but as people. Their scenes facing different personal challenges are genuinely moving to see but when the three of them are together discussing their lives make it even more entertaining. It felt like watching a historical episode of Girlfriends at times (remember Girlfriends? The show starring Tracee Ellis Ross back in the 00s?)

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    This was really good! A very well articulated cinematic statement on race, and how the white establishment often only moves towards progressiveness when it benefits them. The three leads were outstanding, I was happy to see more Mahershala Ali, and Glen Powell from Everybody Wants Some made a wonderful, kind of doofy, John Glenn and I am excited to watch his career continue to take shape.

    This wasn't an art film by any means. Felt very 90s in its sensibilities. And was very effective in that way. The acting was good. It hit the right emotional notes. The story was something that needed to be told. Glad it's getting attention.
