| I'm adding this to my list of great black cinema must see
I saw the movie late the other night on Black Starz and was really impressed. To me it falls in line with movies that I love like "Imitation of Life", "Feast of All Saints" and "Gone with the Wind"...yes, I know that is not "black cinema" but the movie embodies the first black Oscar Winner. I thought Unbowed was a great love story and I missed the opportunity to see it from the beginning but when it ended I was begging for more. Anyone know where this movie may be purchased? If it's on this site, forgive me as I have not been on this site before. What I wonder about the movie is if it was a novel or screenplay and where I can find the book if possible. What the movie also did was spark my interest in what had happened to the late actress Michelle Thomas who played a character in the film. She will be greatly missed. Anyone out there that has some insight to the film hit me back.
