Director Spike Lee, not ordinarily known for positive female characters, presents this refreshing growing up story told through the eyes of a young, middle-class African-American girl. The untold story in most families is a strong woman keeping things together, and this family is no exception. Alfre Woodard turns in a fantastic performance as the family matriarch. The 70′s soundtrack and costumes are fantastic, and stick around for a hip-hop/Soul Train treat with the final credits. [us, 1994]
