coming soon Authentic sounds reverberate throughout the picture.

This review of the Paramount+ movie On the Come Up does not contain spoilers.

coming soon Focus the story on Brie (Jamila Gray), An aspiring rapper living in the shadow of her late father. He is a legend in the Garden Heights area. Bri wears his chain every day, her last memory of a great local rapper who died too early. She also carries a haunting image of her mother Jay (Sana Raisen, Pull double duty behind the camera), leaving her alone and controlled by the heroin she uses. Now that it’s clean, Jay has a hard time finding a job because no one wants to hire her because of her past. family including her brother Trey (rookie Little Titus Makin), there is a danger of homelessness. They owe their rent, the water is now as cold as a relentless world, and the electricity is off.

What might a teenage girl do? That’s where her aunt Pooh (a terrific Da’Vine Joy Randolph) comes in. She thinks that if Bri can be found in battle, she can sign a big contract. However, she resigned because they attacked her family. However, Bri bounced back and destroyed the Supreme-managed rapper (method person), a successful music manager living in a lavish White House and eyeing the best chance to steal Winnie the Pooh out of Garden Heights.

coming soon Adapted from Angie Thomas’ bookwho wrote this critically acclaimed book the hatred you give, which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film in 2018. Adapted from Kay Oyegun (this is us), Lathan retains some of the same themes in Thomas’ work. This is important because the source material is set in the same area of ​​both worlds, Garden Heights. The script revolves around racism, authority transcendence, and most importantly, stereotypes, especially as the world of White Lily forces people of color into the typing box.

It is mainly seen from the point of view of the middle system. For example, Bri was attacked by the school’s paid security guards. They surpassed their authority by checking her bag. The guard even tore her hands off, knocking her to the ground. The principal suspended her and all her conduct. This includes school superintendents whose only interest is in protecting themselves from lawsuits. When Supreme used his position of power to get Bri to record a song that would “scare the parents of white kids,” unrelated to her experience, the song reverberated in the community. That inspired white parents to demand that Brie be permanently suspended.

This, combined with some powerful imagery in Lathan’s shot, evokes genres from the past, giving you a perspective that many are unfamiliar with. Many people may have missed an image. As a child, Bree stumbled across a mural while fleeing from her mother. If you look closely, it depicts a legendary figure wearing the same chain that Bree wore as a teenager. There is a shared history of the community, including trauma and oppression. Where the script does a great job is showing how Brie informs her rap lyrics. Every time she encounters an experience or observation that she admires, Oyegon’s work at least gives viewers an idea of ​​how she honed her craft. This storytelling device evokes subculture-specific emotions that many will never understand.

coming soon is semi-autobiographical.Thomas uses her experience and As a teenager, he dreamed of becoming a rapper. anyone who wants to see this movie the hatred you give Some notable differences will be noticed. The latter generates a lot of super emotion due to the original subject matter. The difference here is that there is a stoic desperation quality to Ryson’s films. This is complemented by excellent performances by Jamilia Gray and Sanaa Lathan.also Dolomite is my nameRandolph, who played Winnie the Pooh in the film Breakthrough. Her take on the role gives the film the juice it desperately needs.

Where coming soon The downside is that Bri’s lyrics are emphasized from the source material; it would have been better if she used multiple experiences to incite the anger of the white community, not just one. If this addition were added throughout the frame, it would be a much stronger movie. The end product, however, was an exhilarating success, the equivalent of many self-made stories or no-one movies, except the grand prize here is a young African-American woman who found her true voice.

It’s more valuable than money.
