Director: Kasi Lemmons

Starring: Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr, Janelle Monae

Release: November 1st, 2019

I don’t dispute that this movie looks powerful, I just don’t think it’ll be that good, and especially not Oscar-worthy.  People have it in the Top Ten for Best Picture, and I just don’t see that, unless they’re going off of pure emotion, not apparent quality.  Lemmons is an unproven director, Erivo is a beginning film actress, Odom & Monae are performers more than anything else; why are we trusting this team with this much drama?  I hope I’m wrong, I’m gonna watch with an open heart, but if we’re predicting things I’m predicting some disappointment.
