Movies That Made Us is a season curated by the team behind Black Femme Film, a collective who work to create safe, positive spaces for young black women to enjoy cinema. Co-founder Martha Nakintu on Waiting To Exhale: "I picked this film because I love a 'trials and tribulation' story, but especially the sisterhood - there's Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett, what more is there to want? No one is perfect but they're not tortured - you see everyone go through it and come out shining in their own way. And that soundtrack!"
Navigating careers, family and romance, four friends experience highs and lows as they lament the lack of good men in their lives: two are playing the 'other woman' in relationships with married men, one is recently divorced, and one attempts to find love for herself.
