*This was the second choice for me and my wife to see when we finally made it together.
*Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monae were enough to pull my attention to this.
*It really does have an excellent cast besides them too.
*I find it interesting that this and Loving both take place in Virginia near the same time frame.
*I didn't know this was based off of a book.
*Theodore Melfi also wrote and directed St. Vincent that in my opinion was just a decent movie with good moments.
*Allison Schroeder also wrote Mean Girls 2 which was terrible.
*Now to get to what this movie offered.
*The writing was actually really good.
*The acting was excellent.
*My favorites here were Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson. I might be biased, but I don't care lol.
*All the stuff these women went through was crazy.
*It's not only about race here, but also about being a woman in the time which I thought was an interesting look at things.
*I also liked the soundtrack.
*Um Kirsten Dunst is a downside for me.
I think this was an excellent movie. It's a great one for equal/women's rights. Everything they went through so the future could be better and do more. These women were strong and didn't let barriers stop them. I would highly recommend checking this out whenever possible.
