Movie Info

Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has a seemingly perfect life -- a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn't go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted.

Critic Reviews for Nappily Ever After

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

Bildungsroman disguised as rom-com, the refreshing script much more concerned with its heroine's emotional arc and personal growth than her ultimate relationship status.

Sep 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, instead of coming across as a warm throwback, Nappily Ever After is a romantic comedy saddled with a reductive understanding of black womanhood without enough cast chemistry or beauty to distract us.

Nappily Ever After is as much a polemic as it is anything else.

A pleasing fluff piece.

Lathan convincingly brings a lot of depth to a role that could have easily been one-note in another performer's hands.

Nappily Ever After can be seen as a comedy of entanglements and also as a social criticism. [Full review in Spanish]
