Claudine Reviews

November 5, 2020
something of a revolutionary film, one that took the basic template of the romantic comedy and used it to explore the lived experiences of a single black mother trying to make it financially, emotionally, and romantically in Harlem

Works as both a gentle romantic comedy and a hard-hitting social critique.

'70s romantic drama about black family has cursing, violence

...Claudine is never quite able to become anything more than a highly dated product of its time...

Well-intentioned but not very compelling as drama or romantic comedy, Claudine bears the distinction of being one of few 1970s films to offer a black femme a lead role, a single mom of six on welfare for which Diahann Carroll received an Oscar nomination.

A rather simple love story about two experienced and jaded adults.
