Movie Info

Turquoise Jones is a single mom who holds down a household, a rebellious teenager, and pretty much everything that goes down at Wayman's BBQ & Lounge. Turquoise is also a bona fide beauty queen-she was once crowned Miss Juneteenth, a title commemorating the day slaves in Texas were freed - two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Life didn't turn out as beautifully as the title promised, but Turquoise, determined to right her wrongs, is cultivating her daughter, Kai, to become Miss Juneteenth, even if Kai wants something else.

  • As frustrating as a lot of Miss Juneteenth can be, there's something pure at its center that you'd have to be truly cynical to ignore.

  • "Miss Juneteenth" richly captures the slow pace of ebbing small-town Texas life, even if you might wish there were a bit more narrative momentum to pick up the slack in writer-director Channing Godfrey People's first feature.

  • [D]espite the strong performances and meticulously crafted world they exist inside, the film's narrative isn't nearly revelatory enough to match its most winning elements.

  • Miss Juneteenth is a rare film that unpacks a lot about being a Black woman in America today. It manages to both find pride in the legacy it examines while also pointing out where reinvention is needed.

  • Playing familiar melodramatic chords in a new and interesting way, the film contains engaging and heartbreaking performances.

    February 17, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • In essence, "Miss Juneteenth" is an ode to black mothers in all their imperfect glory.
