The nuances and layers the actors bring to these complicated, all too real characters and dynamics between them speak far more loudly than any written or spoken word, no matter how big.

Full of ideas on art, politics, relationships, and the construction of identity, it's that rare film in which black characters aren't amped-up caricatures.
