A series of intertwining love stories set in the past and in the present.

Belatedly, I really liked this! The characters are nicely drawn and I liked how the contemporary story rhymed with the flashback story. My only reservation is that although I think LaKeith Stanfield is a fantastic actor, I sort of wished he had turned down the mumbliness about 15% for this role. I am a fan of mumbliness, but to me it didn't quite jibe with the ambitious journalist character.

I also recently watched Personal Problems by Ishmael Reed, and the initial interview in that film is so close to the initial interview scene in this film that I figure it's got to be an homage - the characters are also similar in some ways, having moved from the Deep South to New York to pursue an artistic career.
