*Cues "Sara Smile" by Hall and Oates*
On Friday March 31, I kidnapped my best girlfriend to the theaters to see Tyler Perry’s Acrimony. To tell the short synopsis of this movie, it’s about a devoted wife who becomes enraged and looks to seek revenge after feeling betrayed by her lover. This thriller explores all the emotions—resentment, anger, jealousy, betrayal, regret, shame—most women feel after being scorned in the name of love. No different from real life, the main character, Melinda (Taraji P. Henson), sacrifices a lot for her 18-year marriage to work. So much so that she denies herself happiness and peace. And throughout the years, Melinda’s sisters, Brenda and June, wasted no time asserting their opinions and reminding her that her candidate for marriage was a terribly poor choice. They didn’t even come to her wedding. However, there was an unsung hero who captured my attention throughout the movie...her name was Sarah.
Welcome to my views from this horizon!
