Do the right thing, America. Make this woman a star!
The movie should have been so much better, but the good news is its success will give Nicole Beharie's career a nice boost. Honestly, I'm not sure why she's not everywhere yet. Is it because she's 5'2"? Too young? Too old? Really, what's going on, guys? Check her out in American Violet and Shame and talk to me later. She's pure effervescence.
