  • Dec 24, 2020
    Socially insightful and still a light-on-its-feet drama, ‘Miss Juneteenth' delivers more layered conflicts than another recent (and still likable) film about a pageant mom at odds with her daughter, ‘Dumplin'. Nicole Beharie stars as Turquoise, a young, steadfast single mother trying to empower her teenage daughter while navigating her own derailed destiny. It's not particularly creatively shot, but it is engaging from start to finish, and debut writer/director Channing Godfrey Peoples gently weaves sobering racial history into the small-town Texas setting and Turquoise's own journey. Beharie refreshingly avoids flashiness and melodramatic peaks and her performance is all the more resonant for it. You will not only feel, but truly understand her pride, her regret, her resolve, her hope, her diplomacy, all the plates she is constantly re-stacking as she tries to position her daughter for success in life. Peoples has crafted a prudent film if not a tremendous one.
