Not bad, Not great. a good Interracial Red Box or Lifetime t.v channel movie
16 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

16 July 2017: I see all and support All Interracial movies and t.v shows between men and women. What I wish is that movies would sometimes show Interracial men/women couples as other than just Black & White {African American-Caucasian American}. We need to show mixed race couples of how American really is Not just Black & White couples, but also Hispanic and Caucasian or Asian and African American or African American and East Indian or Middle Eastern as in Israeli or Egyptian Arabs married to a Black or White American. Those mixed couples do exist in real life too.

This on is Not the best Interracial flick, but not that bad. I liked the talented kids the most, young child actress, Oona Laurence is great in her role as Ambrosia and the other young girl who played her friend and young Armani Jackson as "clark" were good. The adults in the cast were okay. Okay for red box or Lifetime channel t.v movie.

Two things that that I did NOT like in this film. One during the scene where the little girl, Ambrosia finds out that Clark's mom is White and she runs off angrily to her room. Anyone over the age of 10 can clearly see when a person is obviously Biracial if his or her skin town is very light, but with other features such as hair texture. Anyone can clearly see that Clark is Not all Black.

I am fed up and tired of seeing movies where a Biracial {black-white} kid or adult is only referred to only as Black. It takes two adults (man & woman} to make a baby and if one of the adults is of another race then the child is of both races and that is in the DNA. Biracial people are Not just one race, they are both races.

Oona's role as Ambrosia is very smart, outgoing and precocious for her age. So she should Not have been shocked to find his mom is Caucasian/White. Also, he did not act like a kid from an all black poor street ghetto with bad English full of street slangs. Clark's diction is proper. It just did not make any sense for Ambrosia to freak out and get angry because he is Biracial.

A boy his age is going to be curious about the opposite sex and since his dad nor mom had the "Talk" with him yet, he is finding out on his own. So his mom should Not have been so shocked when she sees a bikini magazine or poster on his wall. It is just time to give the boy the "Talk".

Next thing, there is No way a kid his age should be having a girlfriend at his age. He could have a crush on a girl, maybe. Perhaps, he was just bragging to his cousin or not when he ran off angrily after the white mom scene. Over all, I give this film one thumb up and a 7. A much better young Interracial Love story is "Everything-Everything" starring Amandla Stenberg.
