My Reaction to Netflix's Original Movie: Nappily Ever After

***Trailer provided by YouTube.****

I have loved Sanaa Lathan for years. She is an amazingly talented actress and never shies away from a tough role.  She has been in so many films over the years and knocks each role she plays right out of the park.  This particular movie is about a high profile advertising executive and how she is seen by her male counterparts.  The whole world seems to be her oyster and the way she stops men in their tracks when she walks by letting her pin straight, long, lovely locks swing to and fro is how she knows she is on top.  She finds herself at a point in her life where she is ready to marry her long time boyfriend and move on to the next phase in her life.  True to form, life has other plans for her.  She ends up single and confused by what went wrong when she was so "perfect".  This is when the real story starts happening. She begins realizing that people have placed her in these various boxes because of how she looks and behaves. The struggle to see her natural beauty and who she really is starts the second she decides to change her hair.   I could very easily go off on a whole tangent on exactly why this movie is so important and all the many difficult subjects it touches upon but then this post would be waaaaaay too long. I will simply say that you need to watch it. It is so well done and the subject matter is more important in this period of time than ever.
