Genuine romantic drama positively showcases Black love.

The Photograph exceeds expectations by simply just being a regular, degular love story.
February 18, 2020
LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae's chemistry is total fire in this romance directed by Stella Meghie.
February 17, 2020
If you are into romances The Photograph is a well executed film I definitely recommend.
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
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)
February 16, 2020
'The Photograph' is unapologetic, unproblematic, and imperfect in all the ways that Black folk were often not allowed to be.
February 15, 2020
it is nice to see a regular romantic drama showcasing African-American characters as there really aren't that many nowadays and the romance feels authentic. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Sexual Content, etc. - also Available)

[Rae and Stanfield] have amazing chemistry.

It is so good. It is so lovely, and beautifully acted, [and] gorgeously shot.
February 14, 2020
Superbly crafted and acted. Romantic on every level. Never overly dramatic, but always captivating. A refreshing and evocative love story that reflects the times we live in.
February 14, 2020
Love, romantic or otherwise, is complicated. The Photograph reminds us that familial love is the root of how we love others.
February 14, 2020
I'm going to come down on the positive side of The Photograph (rather than the negative!) on the strength of its cast, and because it's the best Valentine's picture to open in wide release on the day in question.
February 14, 2020
For a Valentine's trip to the movies, you couldn't wish for a hotter and more talented pair of lovers than Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield. Too bad the movie snuffs out their spark with cliches and over-complicated flashbacks.
February 14, 2020
The Photograph is a sincerely beguiling film, even for its faults.
February 14, 2020
All of it combines into not only a profoundly romantic experience, but also an exploration of a number of different kinds of love and connection.
February 14, 2020
Effectively understated performances drive this richly textured romantic melodrama.
February 14, 2020
A lovely ghost of a movie, the kind of thing we used to call, in the days before the ascent of the superhero film, a popular entertainment.
February 14, 2020
From its first moments, it's like the movie, with its underlying romantic jazz score and winning co-leads, is calling the viewers into an intimate slow dance.
