A nostalgic, easygoing romantic-drama...that's roughly the cinematic equivalent of putting on a Quiet Storm classic-soul track when you're lovelorn and feeling that everything is going to be okay after all.

Despite the film's middle-of-the-road artistic impact, it represents the growth of something unseen for far too long: true-to-life black love that's not just played for laughs.
