Photography is an American love drama set in 2020, written and directed by Stella Meghie, about a famous photographer who falls in love with a journalist (Lakeith Stanfield) who investigates the murder of his wife’s ex-boyfriend. It follows the story of a famous photographer (Michael Fassbender) and his entanglement with his girlfriend (Kate Winslet) as he investigates her murder.
Universal Pictures released the film in the US on February 14, 2020 with Universal Pictures and in Canada on March 1, 2019 with Sony Pictures Entertainment.
There are moments when the unabashed seriousness of the film may slip into unabashed kitschy for some viewers, but Meghie, Rae and Stanfield manage to anchor much of it in reality, so that the romance in Photography never feels too incredible. There is no doubt that Meghie and the film crew have created a breathtaking love story with Photography and she is doing everything she can to address the very real dark side of love and romance.
If you’re feeling single all the time, romance in this movie is probably the last thing on your to-do list, but it’s definitely worth a look.
Mae (Issa Rae) is an assistant curator at the Queen’s Museum and mourns the loss of her mother, a famous photographer who always kept her daughter at arm’s length. The sudden death of Mae’s mother makes her regret that she never had the opportunity to truly know who her mother was. Just a few weeks before Christina’s death, Mae reads a letter once written to her by her father, which forces the young artist to delve into her memories of being too immersed in the work to share with her.
The details of Christina’s sheltered life are illuminated by Mae’s memories of her mother’s work and her relationship with her father.
The pattern of mother and daughter seems to illuminate the wedge that also drove a wedge between Mae and Christina’s relationship, which also prevented Mae from embracing the aspiring – and coming – journalist who was working on a story about the deceased photographer. The story of Mae’s mother was written by journalists Michael Block and LaKeith Stanfield, for reasons I won’t discuss in this review. Adams excels as Christina, a mother who, when seen, encourages her daughter in her own life and her love for her son-in-law.
Since I had expected Meghan’s film to be full of romance, as it hit theaters on Valentine’s Day, I expected it to show a zeal for calculating federal income tax. I made my coffee extra strong and saved $10 on the receipt for Girl Scout cookies.
Forgive the juice, but roses are red, violets are blue and violets are blue – if Valentine’s Day is your thing, then Issa Rae’s new movie is for you. The new romantic drama already reminds me of a classic, “If you’re counting on an all-love holiday, you’ve got a trailer for the star’s latest movie. Photography “with Meghan Markle, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tilda Swinton, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, who play each other’s love interests.
We visited the set of “Photography” this year, so we know exactly what’s going on, but stay tuned to learn more details about the plot of the film, cast and cast photos and more.
Mae and Michael fall head over heels in love, and while the chemistry between LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae is definitely a highlight, I can’t say I fell completely in love with “Photography” because there were just too many distractions that distracted my focus from the love I wanted to see most. I like it, but I’d say it’s because I don’t like star-crossed love stories. The focus is Mae’s relationship with her best friend Michael (Michael Cera), and I have to say that’s what I liked about her.
There is something about this couple that is constantly changing as you watch them over and over again, and that has kept me awake. In an increasingly developing black film landscape, we still seem to face the same problems as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of oppression.
So, for no apparent reason, Michael finds a friend of his who tells him about her mother, who recently died of cancer. Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield look like they’re happy and in love, and not just because they have one of the most beautiful bodies in the world, or even the best hair. It’s because there’s a warm show of support when they cancel their daughter’s birthday party for her.
Director Stella Meghie’s film jumps between Mae and Michael as she tries to unravel the secrets of her own past. The film follows two interlocking storylines: Michael Block (LaKeith Stanfield), who prevails romantically, and his wife Mae (Issa Rae). Through flashbacks, we meet the Louisiana mother and husband who left New York City to start a new life in New Orleans with their daughter Mae.
