Outstanding movie with outstanding acting and an outstanding script. Within the constraints of a 2-hour drama, this movie well handled the American crack cocaine-alcoholism issues/drug codependency issues; grandparenting custody issues under the subtext of race versus race - upper class versus middle class issues - male parent versus female parent issues beautiful. The movie demonstrates good intensity based upon outstanding acting from Jillian Estell to Octavia Butler to Kevin Costner to André Holland to Anthony Mackie and the entire ensemble cast. Brilliant

It was tougher to get through than we thought and we actually had to watch in 2 rounds. Really hard. I wish it had dealt with race and race tension more comprehensively maybe that would have helped keep it together a little bit more.

Rated 1/10. I gave up on this movie after sticking with it for an hour. It was downright depressing. On the back of the DVD box, it is billed as a comedy-drama. I was unable to find any humour in the time that I watched. There is no humour in a character (Costner's) that is continually portrayed as a drunk.

Reading other comments here, I find it hard to believe that we all watched the same show.

Fantastic movie! Acting by all was suburb! I loved this movie!

Amazingly good movie. Besides the language, taking of Our LORD's name in vain and the lesbian content, it was a great movie. Recommended.
Note: it is not the color of the skin, it is your attitude.

Very good movie, the actors and actresses played their roles quite well. The story line is very good and this movies brings up some very good issues. I would absolutely watch the movie again and recommend to anyone.

I thought it was an excellent movie that explored the prejudices on both sides yet showed how in the end, when people put aside their differences, they can come together. I'd watch it again.

Wonderful script and beautifully acted film. It honestly tells the story showing the love, anger, hurt, tolerance and intolerance on both sides. Perfect casting and superb performances.

Well-acted and engaging. Nuanced. Without the sense that one side has all of the truth. Well worth watching.
