For starters, Beyond the Lights is not a chick flick. This movie offers a perspective on so many different levels. You want to learn how to be a supportive partner? You see that. You want to learn how to move forward from a mistake? You see that. You want to learn how to come to realization about an unhealthy pattern? You see that. The list could continue.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker take on their roles as these characters flawlessly. While the film does follow the role of a pop-star and her struggles with her identity, the audience also gains insight on the roles that the other characters play in Mbatha-Raw and Paker’s life, making the movie relatable to the ever day person. You’ll get to see how a person can be affected not only with their career choice, but also how the people in your life play a role in making life decisions for you.

Gina Prince-Bythewood, screewriter of Beyond the Lights and Love and Basketball, delivers another classic movie that is sure to inspire people in their every day lives. Sure you’ll witness the essence of true love, but you’ll also witness a person fulfill their hearts desire in relation to livelihood. Some of us are working tirelessly day to day to make ends meet and unfortunately those actions end up destroying pieces of our spirit daily prolonging life’s true purpose.

I know you’re thinking, how can this movie do all this. Maybe it’s just me rambling about how the movie affected me. Check it out, let me know what you think.
