Have you already gone to see Girls Trip? If not, TFF MAG urges you to set a few hours aside to check out this FAB new film! Earlier this week I took a trip to the movies to see what all the hype was and to my surprise, Girls Trip was everything it's cracked up to be.
Not only was the cast of Girls Trip wonderfully star studded, but the location of the film set in New Orleans during Essence Festival was perfect with the tone of the film. Each character represented at least one of the gal pals in everyones squad.
*Insert Ryan here*
The dynamic of the ladies included in the cast was priceless. Each character represented a struggle or dilemma we have all faced. Watching each character iron out their issues on screen made the content of the film relatable. Topics ranging from infidelity to balancing family and personal life took center stage on more than one occasion.
One of the best things about the film itself is that even though it was centered around a girls trip, the bottom line reflected a need for growth aided by a positive circle of friends and family. As life moves along, sometimes we forget about our friends. We forget that there is a whole world out there waiting to be explored with the people we love. Intimacy is not solely reserved for romantic relationships. It's ok to bring sentiment into friendships to create moments. More importantly, it's necessary to work on your friendships the same way you would work on any other relationship.
My favorite part of the movie was near the end when Ryan had a revelation about her relationship. She showed a form of strength and growth that a number of young women have never witnessed. The ability to walk away from someone or something that no longer serves them. The strength to walk away from a situation that made her unhappy and forced her to take part in a facade that kept her mentally imprisoned.
Girls Trip was funny, honest, raw and candid. There wasn't one moment where the audience wasn't either laughing, or celebrating the choices made by the cast. Watching Jada and Queen Latifah back on the silver screen together was great as well. The Set it Off references were hilarious carefully nestled into the dialogue of the film.
TFF MAG gives Girls Trip two thumbs up! Make sure you see this film with your gal pals to get the most out of your experience. Word on the street is, there's talk about a Girls Trip sequal. Have you already seen the film and loved the movie? Leave your thoughts in the comment section!
