Jennifer’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was very real and personal to me.
From the intense opening scene I knew this was gonna be something really special. This was simply a story of flawed, powerful, yet vulnerable African female warriors and it was truly brought to life in the mist brilliant way possible.
There's a reason why Viola Davis is my favourite Actress of all time cause her ability to make a scene feel so authentic and real is something not a lot of people can do. Usually she outshines everyone, but Lashanna Lynch, Thuso Mbedu and Sheila Atim all held their own alongside her and delivered Oscar winning performances (I'd be shocked of any of these women don't receive an acting nom by the way).
Gina Prince-Bythewood did an amazing job and something about having a Black female director with an all Black female cast really what made the movie so special.
I'm really just still in awe of how amazing this was. A real blockbuster.
