THE BLACK MASCULIST REVIEWS NETFLIX’S “IMPERIAL DREAMS”
This past friday Netflix premiered the 2014 film “Imperial Dreams” starring John Boyega, Keke Palmer, Glen Plummer, Kelita Smith and Anika Noni Rose.
The film centered around a young man newly released from prison tring to pursue his career as a writer while taking care of his son. But the perils of the streets keep calling him back into action.
I felt the movie to be very touching and real. As Blackmen we’re born into a corrupt world designed for us to fail. For survival we have to become products of our environment becoming soldiers of poverty. When a light shines at the end if the tunnel for salvation and freedom we have to decide whether its beneficial to remain in a world you’re familier with or take a leap of faith to discover a better life.
John Boyega shined bright as the lead trying to change his life and teach his son right while living homeless. Every challenge a Blackman faces is present. Does he survive? Does his son?
Watch the movie on Netflix today!
