In this gripping urban drama, rising star Zoe Kravitz plays 17-year old Sweetness O'Hara, the daughter of an African American mother and a white father, who is struggling to find her place in a rough inner city neighborhood. Her father is either absent or abusive; her mixed race background makes her an outsider; and drugs and violence abound. Sweetness finds herself in a downward spiral of drug dealing, shoplifting and fights with a bully (played by Gabourey Sidibe, PRECIOUS) before a series of events leads her to rethink her life and to explore her options for a fresh start.

The acting was great. Zoe Kravitz was authentic and restrained. In fact, everyone was great. Gabourey Sidibe was just okay.
The direction, the look, the music, everything that makes a good movie great was here.... but....
I still didn't "like" it. Rather than spoil it, I will say that I felt the writing caused some disconnect between me and the characters. Some decisions are made that I couldn't sympathize with because I didn't understand the motivation.
Finally: Jason Clarke was REALLY good. I could identify with his character and his transformation. I understood his motivation. It's a shame that the promotion for this film relies so heavily on Gabourey Sidibe, because when it comes to the overall story, she is a non-factor.
