An enthralling musical melodrama.
Rising young British star Gugu Mbatha-Raw (so impressive in Amma Asante’s film Belle) is terrific in writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s music industry romantic melodrama. She plays Noni, a rising singing star managed by her determined mother (an equally fine Minnie Driver), who feels ground down by the fickle industry and finds solace in the manly arms of Nate Parker, a gentle cop who takes it upon himself to protect her. It’s an old-fashioned love story, but told with a good deal of heart and soul.
