Something New felt like a movie I had to watch. Mostly because it’s about an interracial couple. Particularly one between a black woman and a white man. The kind of interracial couple that my parents are. So I watched pieces of the movie on TV. Then one day I watched it beginning to end. It’s well done because I think it perfectly captures what it’s like to date outside of your race. Told mostly from the perspective of the black woman and her family. It can be dramatic when it needs to be, but it never loses sight of what’s really important. Which is the romance. It’s just the kind of thing I like to see.
