A rare film about a mature, intellectual black couple confronting racial prejudice and their own personal desires.
I'll admit, the first ten or fifteen minutes are pretty rough (muffled sound, stiff acting, incredibly wordy, thesis-level dialogue) and I wasn't sure what I was going to get from the experience, but at a certain point it all just began to click for me.
The limited coverage revealed itself to be a choice rather than a budgetary crutch, with most scenes playing out in extended long takes mixed up by slow zooms.
By the final act, I was incredibly absorbed in the relationship dynamics that the film established and what truths they revealed about each character.
Also, special mention to the nephew…
