An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty

Three 2013 theatrical releases, all covered quite comprehensively on S&A, are now available in the home video space - DVD, VOD primarily. So if you haven't seen any of them, here's your chance to do so.

Terence Nance's Gotham award-winning (Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You) work of film art, An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, which Variance Films opened in theaters earlier this year.

Nance’s critically-acclaimed debut, which boasts Jay-ZWyatt CenacDream Hampton, and Joy Bryant as executive producers, was one of the most stylish, inventive, challenging, thoughtful and engaging films I saw at the Sundance Film Festival a year ago (read my review HERE if you haven't), so I'm pleased that it'll finally be seen by many more of you now that it's available on iTunes.

Also be sure to read Jasmin's wonderful Finding The New Black interview with director Terence Nance HERE.

Watch the new trailer below as a refresher:
