Grey’s Inbetween (2008)

This is the day in the life of Jane Grey (Natasha Bain, who also wrote some of the script), a black actress struggling between her career, her love life and how she’s dealing with it all. A breakup with a married man has done more damage to her self-esteem than it should have and she wants to see him one last time, all while getting ready to audition for a role that she’s certain that she can’t get.

It all sounds rather depressing, but as this is directed by Andrew Rajan, the long dialogue segments really inform you all about Jane and how she’s trying to keep her life from going to pieces.

Obviously, I’ll never be a black actress trying to live a modern life in London, but this film puts you directly into the mind and aware of the decisions that its protagonist makes.

You can watch this on Tubi.
