| Unexpectedly Brilliant Performances from Entire Cast WOW!
I expected to either suffer or coast through this movie.

I was wrong.

This is the best film I've seen period. It's the first Asian-Black film and that says a lot.

The entire cast shines, including Ms. Pam Grier, Margaret Cho, and Tatiana Ali This is an engaging story told in a classic cinematic style. The realism is in the nuances - the tilt of a character's head after a dramatic moment or the look in their eyes while they sing. I literally discovered myself involved in this movie during the course of viewing it.

This movie has inspired me to be a better person. In life you don't know who you will run across and sometimes our prejudice will cause us to prejudge a person wrongly. I have learned to give a person the benefit of the doubt because of this movie. I also learned that tough love can build a stronger person. Now I want to know where to find the movie soundtrack.
