Nappily Ever After ★★★

"I hate beer commercials. They're so sexist."

I've been following director Haifaa Al Mansour since her first feature: Wadjda. I love her feminist take on things. 

Nappily Ever After was adapted from a novel. It started off very standard. Sanaa Lathan plays Violet Jones, a woman who has it all together. It's almost too cliché how perfect her outfits and hair are. The hair of course took a lot of work. This film would make a good companion piece to the documentary Good Hair.

I mainly liked it despite the script running into a few bumps along the way. 

Also, Judy stole the pool scene.
