Beyond the Lights

So, I saw Beyond the Lights  yesterday. Beyond the Lights is about a burgeoning starlet who is reaching her breaking point and the man who helps save her, literally. Lights is a well-directed film that blends real media and music figures with actors so well that it holds a behind the scene feel at times. I felt that the director, writers and actors studied and were familiar with the industry they were portraying. It didn’t feel overdramatized or campy. Truthfully, I would like any movie that produces a song as great as Fly Before You Fall by Cynthia Erivo.

 

*I also saw the trailer for Ava DuVernay’s Selma. I.CAN’T.WAIT. TO. SEE. THIS. MOVIE.
