You don't need to bring a handkerchief into the theatre for fear of ocular leakage, but The Photograph's modestly hopeful denouement is, truly, picture perfect.

The question becomes, will Mae and Michael make the same mistake of sacrificing happiness for success? One thing's for sure: They're going to look good doing it.

Sweet and sophisticated, The Photograph plays out like many romantic dramas do. The plot of the film is easy to follow, and predictable at times, but it's an enjoyable watch.

Hooray for an intelligent love story.

Way too uneven, and it doesn't have a lot of momentum. Even their relationship, I guess I was rooting for them just because they had the most screen time and they're attractive...there were no real emotional stakes here, just plain...

There's a lot more realness here than most of these rom-coms we get...

This movie is so beautifully romantic it makes every day Valentine's Day. Shoutout to Lil Rel Howery for stealing every scene he is in.

A movie that embraces the old model of romance while giving it a modern arty sheen.

The American black experience has been the definition of pain; however, we do experience joy, fun, and love like every other race. We also experience success, and that is silently the most powerful element of The Photograph.

Genuine romantic drama positively showcases Black love.
February 18, 2020
The Photograph exceeds expectations by simply just being a regular, degular love story.
February 18, 2020
Despite the fact that on paper the two running storylines should give audiences more than enough to stay interested, The Photograph never takes off or feels particularly urgent.

LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae's chemistry is total fire in this romance directed by Stella Meghie.
February 18, 2020
Ultimately, the film falls flat. The actors involved and Meghie herself are all capable of much more than the movie gives them to do.

If you are into romances The Photograph is a well executed film I definitely recommend.

Aside from Robert Glasper's solid jazz infused score, "The Photograph" leaves a minimal impression, and will likely fade in the distance as time marches on.
February 17, 2020
While The Photograph's leads may not sell its audience on the romance, the exploration into generational love is truly the heart of the film.
February 17, 2020
"The Photograph" is a Stanfield state of mind.
February 16, 2020
No amount of champagne, pretty faces and New York real estate porn can turn dull lovers and a dramatic lack of focus into a pretty picture.
February 16, 2020
The feel good, happily ever after tale benefits from its supporting cast, especially Lil Rei Howery, as Mike's brother Kyle, and his wife Asia (Teyonah Parris)
