Movie Info

Adele Oni stars as Jade, a successful freelance photographer who is hopelessly in love with her best friend of 10 years, bar manager Danny (played by Kadeem Pearse). She discovers through several challenging encounters both personally and professionally that the one thing keeping them from happy ever after is her inherent beauty - her complexion and skin tone. Her shade.


Critic Reviews for No Shade

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • For a film addressing worthwhile issues of beauty - outer and inner, and the prejudices around it - it rarely rises above the superficial.

    Top Critic
  • A witty, emotional, yet hard-hitting look at colourism in relationships. With a wonderful performance from Adele Oni as Jade, trying to navigate relationships with men who set her impossible standards while demanding she also be true to herself.
