    I am glad she got this role, she is being criminally overlooked for HF and it is terrible. She is such an amazing actress who has not had the career she deserves and I’m glad it is starting to come together for her. She was on a THR roundtable where she said she wants to play a superhero. And I would love to see that, however I know Hollywood is to stupid to ever make such a unique decision. Hopefully this role opens some doors, it’s not a superhero role, but it’s at least an interesting role for an not in her 20s black actress. I’m not sure how I feel about the movie itself. Why do stories about women always have to be fueld be either rape, children, or love. I understand that they are major parts of many woman’s life, but it would be nice to have a female character not inspired by one of those three, because not all women pursue things for those reasons. Some women pursue things for themselves. I doubt It will be an oscary movie, but I’ll take as much cookie as I can get.
