“Love is anything but a neat fairytale … very real and well-rendered ... stayed with me well after leaving the theater.”
– Nijla Mumin, Shadow and Act
Love is transformative and in flux in this drama in which relationships and romantic dreams of nine sophisticated friends reach a turning point in the course of one day. IN THE MORNING zeroes in on three sets of lovers reaching a dead end in their journey together, through infidelity, changing expectations, and new opportunities. Writer-director Nguvu brings a poetic lilt to her savvy grownup dialogue, and cinematographer Arthur Jafa (DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST, CROOKLYN) gives Brooklyn settings a dashing look. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature at New York’s Urban World Film Festival. DCP digital. (BS)
