  • A love letter to the power of escapism, a devastating portrayal of grief and a Kenyan family drama that defies stereotypes, Supa Modo serves as an important reminder that even when heroes die, they can continue to inspire others long after they're gone.

  • I'm glad movie theaters are dark because I ugly-cried my way through all 74 minutes of "Supa Modo." I straight-up bawled my eyes out.
