A Thousand and One

A Thousand and One ★★★½

Perhaps not the most original tale of urban struggle, but this really stayed with me all the same. Teyana Taylor, in the lead part, is utterly possessed by her role; she’s completely convincing as an emotionally damaged, single mother trying to bring up a young boy in New York City at the turn of the millennium. An astonishing debut feature for A.V. Rockwell.
