    I'm not a fan of using this music track. It tries too hard to make the piece seem contemporary and as a result the emotional connection is lost. Also, why does the film looked so washed out? Just because it's a period piece doesn't mean it should look dated. Kudos for Lifetime for continuing to feature Black stories. Black is the new Black.
