Fast Color
2019
Hunted by mysterious forces, a young woman with supernatural abilities must go on the run when her powers are discovered. With nowhere else to go, she flees back to her family and the farmhouse she abandoned long ago. There, while being pursued by the local sheriff, she begins to mend the broken relationships with her mother and daughter, and unearths the depths of the power within her.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

It's a shame that this movie didn't get more widely seen; its box office take of only $77k is downright shocking. Then again, it appears to have had a tiny production budget, very little marketing, and its pace is so relaxed that the title becomes a bit of a joke. It's been called a superhero movie for black women, but it's not interested in race and it's not really about superpowers; they're only a plot device to force conversations between the characters. This is a drama and a character study first and foremost, and a particularly well-acted one, but that's no surprise with a cast that features Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lorraine Toussaint, and David Strathairn. I read online that it's being turned into an Amazon Prime TV series, and that's probably what it should have been from the start, because I could stand to see a lot more of these characters and this semi-post-apocalyptic world.
