Menelik Shabazz writes and directs this groundbreaking film about a young Black woman who has had enough of her job, her boyfriend and Thatcher’s Britain.
Shabazz neatly avoids trapping his main characters inside the bubbles…that suffocate most black figures in movies…nothing else quite like it has been made. – Ade Solanke, BFI Screenonline.
