Some great actresses sink their teeth into an assortment of meaty topics in this intense drama that explores what it means to be a modern day African-American woman. From love and infidelity to domestic abuse and teenage pregnancy, there's plenty to think about, as the lives of nine different females interconnect through their personal challenges and crises. Among them, an editorial assistant faces the double whammy of a traumatic relationship and a monstrous boss, while even her social worker can't escape heartbreak when her past returns to haunt her. The film's impressively acted and, despite its sadness, full of positive messages, with an intriguing structure that intersperses conventional dialogue with poetry-type monologues.
