It's Friday... some weekend viewing when you've got about 90 minutes to spare. Although this one just might save your life. As someone who comes from a family with a history of diabetes, this was especially evocative.

It seems like the Lifetime movie network is producing more original black movies (or movies with black people in starring roles) than any other TV (broadcast or cable) network right now; there's the all-black cast remake of Steel Magnolias; the recent acquisition of Terry McMillan’s A Day Late And A Dollar Short which the network plans to adapt; the Mary J. Blige/Angela Bassett project which centers on the relationship between Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King called Parallel Lives; there's Abducted: The Carlina White Story, which stars Aunjanue Ellis, Keke Palmer, and Sherri Shepherd; and also there was Taraji P. Henson In Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story last year; and now this one: another original movie titled A Narrow Bridge, starring Toni Braxton.
