Solid attempt using diversity quotas
26 April 2019 | by jcollins-03984See all my reviews

I admire the effort of someone to make a movie about something they aren't directly involved in - but as far as a cinematic experience and story execution, this was more suited as a TV movie than an independent release. The lead was clearly out of place and used as the AA foil in a white world when it doesn't exist in North Dakota, and the story was flaccid with a mini lifetime moment at the end. As an educated minority, I don't feel the need to big up or hype a project just because it was created by a minority .. 95% of reviewers who operate with some sense of white guilt which is why Jordan Peele, Kaling etc.'s mediocre attempts at putting colors in place of formulaic white stories are seen as award worthy - I judge based on merit and story alone. The acting was weak, although Lily James and the parole officer played their roles well. Really wish it was done better because the elements were all there. Nonetheless, I will watch the director's next feature with a bigger budget because I do root for improvement but do not blindly give out participation trophies just because you check a box.
