This is a drama with a capital D... Every sistah I know is going to love this movie.

Bass' script is overly ambitious (perhaps because we're so starved for these kinds of stories), biting off more than one indie debut can, or should, chew.

Between its amateurish direction, pedestrian cinematography, and overly plotted script, the narrative and visuals don't coalesce into a story that feels restorative, cathartic, or even joyful.

The movie really comes to life only when the women are talking to each other, renewing their connections and providing the support that only friends for decades can give.

Marriages fail, children rebel, recovery commences - but who cares what happens on such a flimsy foundation? The stories never reach resolution because the relationships were indistinct from the beginning.

It's not groundbreaking but, written by Bass, the movie serves as a fine reminder of the pleasures of a female-focused story with the stuff of adulthood at its core.
