Not my genre but still thoroughly enjoyed it

With the low IMDb rating, pop culture and romance, I was thoroughly expecting overused tropes, bad acting, and marginal writing. What I got was the complete opposite. I am not a fan of pop culture or romance movies but somehow these characters became very real for me.

In particular, I am impressed with the director's discipline. There are so many overused tropes that could easily have dominated the screen time. Instead, she hits her points and moves on.

The supporting cast was particularly impressive for their sheer believability. Hollywood too often takes the liberty "it's only a movie" or "it's Hollywood, we can totally do whatever". Instead, they stayed true.

This movie will go in my Blu-Ray collection when it finally comes out. The subtleties are impressive and worth revisiting. This is the second movie with a primarily romantic focus to achieve that honor. The first is True Romance.

Self-Image And Confidence Are More Important Than Lights And Fame

Saw Beyond the Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nate Parker, and Minnie Driver! "Noni" played by Raw grows-up with a dream to sing and when she finally gets to super-stardom, dealing with the pressures of fame, her Manager Mother "Macy Jean" played by Driver, and influences from the Rap Music Industry puts her over the edge until she meets her savior "Kaz" the cop played by Parker who puts her life back on track.

"Kaz" helps "Noni" retreat from her controlling manager mom, the paparazzi, and music industry to take some time to reflect upon where she came from until the very moment when her career took off. After a long struggle with her self-image, being told what to do and how to do it from her manager mother and record label, "Kaz" helps "Noni" gain the courage she needs to develop her own thoughts and voice which ultimately sets her free like a "Black Bird" to become the musical artist she was meant to be, instead of what others wanted her to be.

My cinema score is 8/10! This Romantic drama Film is a great date-night movie with so many important life messages regarding self-image, being happy, love & success, so take your boo to go see it! ‪#‎maverickradio‬™
