A Thousand and One (2023, D: Rockwell) S: Teyana Taylor



"A love letter to mothers, sons, and hustlers of NYC." A.V. Rockwell's A THOUSAND AND ONE is only in theaters March 31, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

A THOUSAND AND ONE follows unapologetic and free-spirited Inez (Teyana Taylor), who kidnaps her six-year-old son Terry from the foster care system. Holding onto their secret and each other, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City.
Out in theatres this week.

This was a great little movie. Really didn't seem like acting. More documentary or real life. Really excellent filmmaking all the way around.

Agree. I saw this last week and meant to post my thoughts. Tremendous film. The acting was so real and raw. From every single actor. Especially Teyana Taylor who was spectacular. Had this come out in the Fall, she would 100% get an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Could even see it getting nominated for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and maybe one for Josiah Cross and Terry Abney for their supporting roles. But I'm sure this movie will be long forgotten by awards season. Sadly. Gets my highest rating 10/10. Loved it.
