Una Great Movie (2020)

This movie threw me for a loop. It starts like a Waiting to Exhale story of a black woman heading to Mexico to find true love and then starts taking on notes from Hollywood execs to reveal that it’s really the tale of a writer trying to sell her script.

As Zoe’s movie slowly becomes whitewashed, we get to watch a better, more realistic movie without stereotypes. The goal of the movie was “portraying a universal humanity rather than categories of difference.”

The end result lives up to that lofty aim. It was written and directed by Jennifer Sharp, who is a talent to watch. You can learn more at Una Great Movie at the official Facebook page.

DISCLAIMER: This movie was sent to me by October Coast. It’s still playing festivals, but keep your eyes open for it to be released soon.
