With a great story and solid acting, the one thing that lets the film down is the racing. Rush has shown us what a racing movie can look like. While the racing here is good, it's just not great.
All in all, it isn't the film I wanted or the film I thought I was going to get, but there's plenty of good here...just make sure you have tissues handy.
Wonderfully written and beautifully directed by Minhal Baig, we follow the titular Hala in her last few months of high school, trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life, embracing her crush on a classmate and growing to understand that her home life isn't quite what she thought it was. The brilliance here is the change in how she (and in turn the we) see her mother and father at the start of the movie compared to the end. It's subtle, it's patient and it's really effective character development.
The biggest reason for my enjoyment of Dolemite is Wesley Snipes. Playing against type and truly going for it, he absolutely steals every scene he's in and for the first time since New Jack City, it looks like he's doing some real acting. If there are nominations to be handed out, I think they should be going to Wesley.
I've never read the book Little Women and it became clear early on that I've either not seen prior incarnations of this movie or that I have, but completely forgot. In short, much like A Star is Born last year, I was a blank canvas for a story that has been told multiple times. All I can say is, WOW!
