This is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever watched, and one of the most powerful. It is an exploration of the ‘N’ word, and all the power, hurt, and connotations it has. Most of Hollywood and some of the music community offers their views on the word- when to use it, when not to, who to use it with. But this movie is so much more than that. It sounds way to much like an after school special to say that this movie will open up a dialogue between you and anyone you watch it with, or explain it to. Yes, this is the case with this film. Once the subject is breeched- and this is the perfect icebreaker to do it with- then you and others can start talking about what this word means to them and how it has impacted them or those they love. Everyone has something to say about it. So listen and learn. It’s powerful in a very magical way. Just don’t watch the film and expect easy answers on race or community issues, but do watch the movie and expect to have a very thought provoking experience. Recommended for everyone, but parents might want to screen this movie before watching it with young children as it has adult subjects and language. But watch this movie, then watch it with those you love. You’ll be glad you did. Talking about these issues is the only way to solve anything.Was this review helpful?
