In this time of not having much to do, I guess we can all appreciate when streaming services give us something new to watch. After all, as much I like watching The Office over and over again, even I need a change. Which brings us to what was just released today on Prime Video… Selah And The Spades.
This isn’t, by any means, your typical High School, movie. It’s actually a pretty serious film with a predominantly unknown cast. And I think that really helps to sell this one.
Lovie Simone (Selah), gives a very strong performance as our lead character, who is one of the leaders of the five factions that runs the boarding school she attends. But with all politics there’s a power struggle and Selah isn’t one to just let someone take her power… cause as she put it, “when you’re seventeen, you gotta grab on to that control , wherever you can and hold on for dear life. Cause they always try to take it. Don’t they?”
The only real issue I came across with this one, even though it’s a very good film, is that it might be too serious for the young audience it’s intended for. Especially at a time like this. But since there isn’t much else to do these days, it’s definitely worthy of being added to the “Watch List”
