Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The soulful, messy process of grief gets a soulful, messy treatment in Ava DuVernay's I Will Follow.
Rotten: Shows a certain amount of promise but often falls prey to easy emotional beats and an overall sentimentality when it should push for moments less obvious, more rare, true and insightful.
Fresh: This touching if insular drama about a woman grieving over the recent death of her aunt is well acted and incisively observed, although it's ultimately too low-key to have much dramatic impact.
Fresh: Its elegantly simple structure filled in with startling, understated force, I Will Follow is a modestly framed portrait of grief in its first season.
'I Will Follow' is an unconventional, in depth look into a path towards recovery following the loss of a loved one. This film is brilliantly directed and taps into the psyche of the viewer in ways unimaginable. People of all backgrounds can appreciate the character dynamics, complexity, subtlety and emotions of this film.
Good date movie
I was skeptical at first but I walked away feeling happy that I watch this film.
Seldom, do I have the opportunity to see an ensemble of well know African American actors, in a drama roll. This is a film that one can add to their list of movies to watch. Enjoy.
I enjoyed this film a lot. Not only because it happened to be black but the characters were normal. There were no clichés. It was a bit slow at times though. I related to the story so much. I lost my grandmother. I wanted to be just like her. We were best friends. Keep doing you thing!!! Don't give in to what they say. Don't make any black versions of anything. Be you!
