NEW AT THE MOVIES
It is entertaining, inspiring and a sobering reminder--"all that glitters ain't gold!" Beyond the Lights is story of Noni, the music industry's latest "it girl!" I thought the name Noni was no coincidence. The movie had not so subtle hints of another famous sex symbol, "Norma Jean."Though the storyline comes up short I really like this movie because it is "topical and timely" for so many women out there willing to do anything for their 15 minutes of fame.
"Beyond the Lights" is a love story and a poignant glimpse of what really happens when you "chase your dreams and lose yourself in the process." I was especially happy to see a seasoned veteran like Danny Glover influence newcomers like Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker. I also loved the cameos from everyone including Chaka Khan and BET's Debra Lee. See this film this weekend family; you'll be glad you did!
