For months Arianne has been talking about this film. If you know her or her taste, you’d know why. Any movie with Lily James or Tessa Thompson is a must-see in her household. So, imagine her reaction when they’re in a film together. And also imagine hearing about it for months on end. In fact, the only reason I’m doing this write-up is that she’s stuck at work and hasn’t even had the opportunity to look at the trailer yet. Sorry friend.
Well, on the plus side, it looks incredible. If the pull quotes are any indication of the film, it seems that Nia DaCosta is an important voice that we all must seek out. I always love discovering new voices.
What do you think? Does it seem like something you’d check out, and do you think you’ll come to see Arianne be in love? With the movie, I mean.
Update: This is definitely a voice that must be checked out since Jordan Peele and his Monkeypaw production company offered her to direct the Candyman sequel that is coming through them. This has gotten even more interesting.
