I remember when it seemed news of OWN's struggles dominated the media landscape; there didn't seem to be much of a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. It was all doom and gloom.

The thing to really appreciate about Peeples is its rich and genuine portrayal of the black family at its center. This isn't the hackneyed, artificial blackness we're used to seeing on screen. There's no Gospel proselytizing, no Kevin Hart-like shenanigans, no men in drag. But everything - from the dialogue, to the music threaded throughout the film, to the Romare Bearden and Geoffrey Holder art in the Peeples' home - is infused with black culture in a way that's authentic to us and yet accessible to all.
