MISS JUNETEENTH ๐Ÿ˜Š

Critics are hailing MISS JUNETEENTH as โ€œa movie for this moment.โ€ That is definitely true, itโ€™s just too bad the moments are so plodding, softening the impact of the tremendously empathetic mother/daughter bond at the heart of Channing Godfrey Peoples directorial debut.

Regardless of that critique, lead actor, Nicole Beharie turns in a quietly restrained award worthy performance as a mother pushing her failures on her daughter to be the beauty pageant winner instead of just listening to what her daughter really wants.

It is currently available on-demand to rent via Amazon, Google, Apple, Vudu and FandangoNow
