This movie had me crying almost the whole time, which is high praise for a highly emotional movie like this. Danielle Deadwyler was amazing in this movie as Mamie. Her acting was so good that I felt like I was experiencing everything with her and not just watching a movie. Not only was the acting top-notch but the score was perfect. It enhanced every scene excellently, whether the characters were feeling sad, angry, or worried the music helped give the emotions even more weight.
Like most movies based on true stories that I end up seeing I didn’t really know that much about the story beforehand. So, because of that I usually don’t like to say whether a movie like this is accurate or not but there’s just something about this movie that makes it feel accurate. It just gives off that feeling that they put effort into making this movie as truthful as they could be. Which makes this a perfect “based on a true story” movie, informative yet highly emotional and I would give it an 8 out of 10.
