Atom User Reviews for The Photograph
🖤🖤🖤🖤 black love . Love it see love to promote it
Shallow characters, poor acting, a 15 minute story stretched out to almost 2 hours. Absolutely painful.
such a dope movie
Saddened the leading lady had to settle for a guy ghosting her with poor communication skills and she compromised everything to “get the guy” but he didn’t actually do anything to EARN her. Stellar cast which was my single motive for going to see this in theaters on opening weekend. Would appreciate a better deserving male lead (read: major character flaws he actually failed to overcome at all from start to finish yet somehow Mae is the one apologizing in the end???). Periodt.
Haven’t been to a movie theater in a long time. I saw the previews and thought it would be a great love movie. Very disappointed that I was fighting to stay awake. We left the movie before it got to the middle. What a waste of money!Should of been a Netflix or Hulu movie.
Beautiful black love 😍
my date loved it. I did too
This is a wonderful movie
Awesome love story
great movie for that special person to go with
Wanted to see this movie based on the main characters. The title was misleading, it definitely didn't follow the storyline. And then I saw that Will Packer was a part of the production...smh no wonder it made absolutely no sense. If you wanna support a black film then ok go see it other than that you'd be wasting your time and money
Awesome movie, loved it!
Not enough love and sex
I really enjoyed the back story more so then the couple in the “main story” (on the trailer). I do have the day the way that he looks at her is uncannily!
Unique love story, awesome soundtrack and could wath6again & again.
A love story that was really needed!
The Photograph was a great movie inspired by blackLove just poor decisions people make in general when it comes to love. I would go to theaters again a second time to watch, I just love it.
Loved it. I smiled during the entire movie.
Absolute love this movie
Beautiful black love story!!!

It was a beautiful love story!
I loved every minute!! It a great love story. The soundtrack is bomb af too
Weird plot to the movie
The movie was a little long with a slow pace
No chemistry between the two main characters; that was the biggest flaw.
A waste of time
Made my boyfriend tear up! We loved it! Great love story
Issa Rae did an excellent job transitioning from T.V. to the big screen. She also did an excellent job portraying the character she played.
stare at me like he did and you’ll be out in the rain so fast.
Incredibly SLOW, stupid plot!
It’s was cool. Girlfriend said “It needed a better story”. Other than that, it was ok. Doesn’t match the title though.
Was Kind Of boring. Fell Asleep.
It ended to fast..
Loved the movie
Although the film sometimes dips into muddled melodrama, those occasional setbacks can’t derail a story filled with warm, resonant characters trying to fathom their own hearts.
The Photograph is a romance-heavy star vehicle for Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield that’s deeply flawed but both sexy and thoughtful. Writer-director Stella Meghie’s fourth feature (after The Weekend, Everything Everything, Jean of the Joneses), thick and multi-layered with a lush and precise visual language, invites the audience to look beneath the surface of a standard meet-cute.
Though it’s an intoxicating blend of modern and vintage romance, The Photograph, while flawed, is most intriguing when it peels back the layers between a mother and daughter who never really knew each other in life, but whose stories eventually intertwine in ways they could have never imagined.
