100% Little Woods (2018) Little Woods is a story we don't often see told from a black woman's lens, especially not in this particular setting. It's a story of sisters who band together and fight against every complication.‐ Shadow and Act

23% Tyler Perry's Acrimony (2018) The film's mangled final act does not mean that Acrimony is without merit. The acting is fantastic, the idea is solid, and there are undoubtedly various themes surrounding relationships and mental health to be discussed and considered.‐ Shadow and Act

80% Jinn (2018) The mother-daughter relationship is central here, as we watch two very different women come to terms with who they are and who they are desperate to become. This juxtaposition was one of the most profound aspects Jinn. ‐ Shadow and Act

18% Jinn (2014) More than anything the film shines because it isn't about the trauma or pain that Black women experience. Jinn is about identity, those beautiful, carefree days of youth, and how in a split second, one thing that is so deeply important can be replaced.‐ Shadow and Act

39% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle In Time was made not just with kids in mind, but with 8-12-year-olds as the film's intended audience. It is DuVernay's love letter to children and the wonder and magic of childhood. ‐ Shadow and Act

100% Hale County This Morning, This Evening (2018) Hale Country works best in its quietest moments, when Ross allows his audience just to sit and engage with the subjects.

93% Blindspotting (2018) Its dialogue is what's most brilliant about Blindspotting. Casal and Diggs use raps and rhymes interspersed with traditional discourse. It's not a straightforward story about present-day race relations, toxic masculinity, and immaturity by any means. ‐ Shadow and Act

51% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Roman J. Isreal, Esq. isn't just a narrative about how three weeks can dramatically change your life, it's a tale about the things we tell ourselves and how desire and excess can seduce even the most humble among us.‐ Shadow and Act
