A predictable yet very good feel-good movie with great acting—Mos Def deserves special mention as I found his character particularly interesting—and characters one cares about.
There is a scene in the movie that I want to highlight here, and I’ll do it in the words of Roger Ebert:
There’s a scene in “Brown Sugar” I never thought I’d see in a movie, where after Reese and Dre have a “final” fight, and in a more conventional film she would disappear forever from the screenplay, but here she returns to suggest counseling and says they need to work harder at their marriage. How many movie romances are that thoughtful about their characters? #
