What a striking film! Beautiful, subtle, devastating--all the feels! I recommend this especially to fans of Spike Lee, it has that masterful tension like Do the Right Thing.

A terrific setting backdrop that supports the themes of the movie without being explicit, speaks of interactions between ethnicities that are often overlooked in favor of how they define themselves with regards to white people, and excellent performances guiding a simple yet hard-hitting story, all convene to make this film a can't-miss.
