Flick In A Limerick

Haunting secrets begin to come clear
For a filmmaker and his girlfriend after a premier
All through the night
They make up and fight
To see if their relationship can persevere

The Big Finish

Please and thank you really do go a long way. Zendaya and John David Washington have incredible chemistry and really brought the best out of each other. It was intriguing watching the co stars portray roles that are so different then their prior work that they more then mastered. Even with having only two characters dominate the entire run time they held my attention with their emotional versatility and magnetic monologues. Interesting are some of the cinematography decisions such as the monochrome and camera angles. This quarantined artistic piece does an excellent job displaying the power struggle in relationships and the constant fight for equality. It is a must partners build each other up, not take anything for granted and let each other know how much they are appreciated. There is also absolutely no way that anyone can beat a black woman in an argument.
