Great writing, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing, Delightful

See it if A stunning ensemble comedy that sneaks up on you with its bigger emotional turns. Gorgeous writing perfectly staged.

Don't see it if No reason not to. It’s funny, and it’s moving. It’s a good time but it’s also resonant. Jocelyn Bioh keeps knocking it out of the park.

Modern masterpiece

See it if Jocelyn Bioh has written a modern masterpiece, akin to an August Wilson theatrical portrait, this time in a hair braiding parlor. A+ acting.

Don't see it if No reason not to see it, unless you think like Mr. T, re "sh××hole" Countries, and prefer to ignore reality.
