For some reason Ms Oduye's performance did not ring true to me. Perhaps it was the lack of tears, or the theatrical way she delivered her lines. I wish a more seasoned actress would have had her part. It's a shame too, because I LOVED her in Pariah. That was so natural for her, where this felt forced. Other than that slight complaint, the movie was amazing. I also saw Dallas Buyers Club this weekend. Two AMAZING character studies in one weekend. Oscar season is delivering.
