    Issa and LaKeith are good on screen together even if the plot line doesn't take us to any unexpected places. The back story gives this love interest some depth...

    Love is suffering : by forgiving those who let one down, continuing to love those who can't commit, and accepting half-truths from those who keep secrets again and again and again..

    The flashback scenes/acting were a bright point. Issa and LaKeith while both good actors seemed like they were in two different movies.

    Lushly romantic in tone and atmosphere, this is all surface, but it's a very pretty surface indeed.

    #ThePhotograph Review: 7/10 Pros: Lakeith Stanfield + Issa Rae (they elevate the whole movie) Realistic characters and dialogue Effective mood/tone Beautiful visuals Cons: The "past" love story really didn't engage me VERY conventional story Feels about 15min too long

    I watched this movie over and over when I rented On Demand. My only regret was renting and not purchasing. Love the chemistry between Mae and Michael.
