GET YOUR POPCORN FOR THIS:


If the title didn’t make it clear, ‘Tyler Perry’s Divorce in the Black’ comes from writer/director Tyler Perry. However, don’t mistake this for another crude comedy in the vein of his Madea series. Instead, ‘Divorce in the Black’ is a mature drama about the destructive nature of all-consuming love and the challenges of escaping a toxic relationship.

The film centers on Ava (Meagan Good), a dedicated professional whose life is upended when her husband, Dallas (Cory Hardrict), unexpectedly leaves her. Ava is determined to salvage her marriage, but her resolve is tested as Dallas’ past misdeeds surface, offering her a chance at the love she truly deserves. For those seeking romantic melodrama with enough thrills to stay engaged, ‘Tyler Perry’s Divorce in the Black’ is worth a watch—just don’t expect many surprises.

The Long Game
Netflix, 12 July

It’s been an exciting summer of sports, and ‘The Long Game’ on Netflix promises to be another uplifting reminder of the power of healthy competition. Based on Humberto G. Garcia’s 2010 novel ‘Mustang Miracle,’ ‘The Long Game’ tells the true story of the San Felipe Mustangs, a group of Mexican-American youth who build their own golf course in the South Texas desert. Despite lacking professional training and quality equipment, they are determined to compete against wealthy, all-white teams at the 1957 Texas State Golf Championship. Described as “‘Field of Dreams’ set in the world of golf,” this feel-good sports movie is a real hole-in-one.
