Double Feature with BEYOND THE LIGHTS

(2000) dir Gina Prince-Bythewood w/Omar Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Dennis Haysbert, Debbi Morgan, Harry Lennix, Alfre Woodard, Tyra Banks [124 min; 35mm]
In writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s excellent romantic drama about two childhood sweethearts who both yearn to play professional basketball, Quincy (Epps) is a player with natural talent while Monica (Lathan) must fight for everything she gains.

“Stylishly shot and bursting with visual and sexual energy, this is confident black women’s film-making and an eloquent tribute to the girl with the permanently grazed knees — and about time too.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“Sanaa Lathan performs as if she were lit from within.” – Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture

Love and Basketball never once squelches with unearned tears. It’s cool, feminist, and fudges nothing.” – Antonia Quirke, Independent
