THE MOGUL MINUTE
"Beyond The Lights" is absolutely stupendous! After seeing the private screening tonight I can officially say "Truth is the only ground to stand on " because this movie is the TRUTH and I stand by it . From the beginning to end , there's a beautiful magnetic pull that keeps you absorbed in the changing life of "Noni Jean" (GuGu Mbatha-Raw) and "Kaz" (Nate Parker) . Serious life issues such as self worth, self love , and repressed emotions were highlighted in the film and showed that its okay to need help and when the pressure gets tough you have to make a change for the better. "Beyond The Lights" also had cameos from your favorite celebs such as The Chairman and CEO of BET Ms.Debra Lee , Richard Colson Baker (MGK) , and many more. Gina Prince-Bythewood you are brilliant ! You wrote and directed another epic film that will inspire artist and dreamers everywhere! The cast was beautiful, majestic and embodied pizzazz. The music selected for this film is beyond incredible . You can purchase the soundtrack on iTunes (Here). Danny Glover "Captain Nicol" , Minnie Driver "Macy Jean" , India Jean-Jaques (11 Yr Old Noni Jean) ,
GuGu Mbatha-Raw "Noni Jean " and Nate Parker "Kaz" all did a phenomenal job in this film. I'm absolutely in love with this movie . "Beyond The Lights" shakes up theaters world wide on 11.14. 2014 !
