5 Reasons Why You Should Definitely See ‘Black Nativity’

1. Phenomenal acting skills!

With an incredible cast, ranging from Forest Whitaker to Nasir Jones, there is a character that can appeal to any viewer. These two remarkable artists are joined by other big name actors such as Tyrese Gibson, Jennifer HudsonMary J. BligeAngela Bassett, and Jacob Latimore!

These are the creme of the creme of actors. The emotion behind each and every one of them really hits home — to the point where you can feel their exact emotion. I even caught myself getting a little teary-eyed throughout!

From pain to sadness to laughter, you will definitely feel all of these emotions as you join these characters on their journey throughout the film.

2. The singing is jaw-dropping!

With a cast filled with musical artists like Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, and Nas, it is no surprise director, Kasi Lemmons, used this to her advantage and created this year’s ultimate holiday musical film!

You won’t be overwhelmed or bored by the musical numbers. They are timely and lots of fun to watch, all while giving you goosebumps with some of the astonishing notes these singers hit!

3. Tugs at your heartstrings.

This film brings to light a different lifestyle and struggles that not everyone may be aware of. It shows the severity of some of the daily struggles many people are living through. It makes you really reevaluate your lives and lifestyle and really appreciate the things we most commonly take for granted.

4. Underlying comedy.

This film is clearly intended to be a comedy, but that doesn’t mean it has to be serious all the time! There are plenty of comical moments that will have you giggling throughout the film.

5. Major twist!

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, figured it all out, a MAJOR twist comes way out of left field! That is all I can say about that, so you are just going to have to go see the film yourself and I am telling you, you won’t want to miss this!
