Mo’nique Stars in Blackbird.

Blackbird Movie Poster

Blackbird, a coming of age tale stars Mo’nique, newcomer Julian Walker and Isaiah Washington (not sure what to make of Washington starring in the film). Walker’s character struggle with his sexuality and conflict builds due to the teenager coming from a religious family. I’m curious to see the film as I can relate a hundred percent to being gay in a religious family but I’m anxious to see a black film in the mainstream where LGBT characters are no longer struggling with their sexuality but are loving, living and thriving.
