“How are you suppose to know if you want to spend forever with someone?”- Issa Rae
The Photograph Movie looks like it’s going to be the topic of Beauty and Barber shops when it hits theaters on Valentine’s Day.
Actor LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae connect in a romance where a woman must learn from the secrets in her mother’s past if she is to move forward and allow herself to love and be loved.
When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Rae) hurt, angry and full of questions. When a photograph tucked away in a safe-deposit box is found, Mae finds herself on a journey delving into her mother’s early life and ignites a powerful, unexpected romance with a rising-star journalist, Michael Block (Stanfield).
The film also stars Chanté Adams (Roxanne Roxanne) as Mae’s young mother Christina, Y’lan Noel as Christina’s secret love, comedian Lil Rel and Courtney B. Vance.
