Drama: A rising pop star thinks she might have found an answer to her unhappiness in the young cop who saved her life.
Noni Jean (GUGU MBATHA-RAW) is a rising young adult star in the pop world thanks to her natural talent as well as the blood, sweat and tears put in by her mother, Macy Jean (MINNIE DRIVER), who works tirelessly to promote her and reinforce her mantra that there's no place for a first runner-up. Yet, despite her success and an arranged business-meets-romantic relationship with rapper Kid Culprit (MACHINE GUN KELLY), Noni isn't happy. One night after an awards show and some celebratory drinking, she nearly takes her own life via a plunge off her hotel balcony. Fortunately for her, LAPD officer Kaz Nicol (NATE PARKER) is on duty outside her door and rushes in to save her.

He isn't star struck by her as he has political ambitions to make his community a better place, much to the delight of his fellow cop father, Capt. David Nicol (DANNY GLOVER). Yet, he isn't pleased when his dad tells him the necessary thing to do regarding Noni's suicide attempt is to go along with the lie that she simply had too much to drink and nearly slipped to her death. While some in the paparazzi don't buy that and press Kaz for the truth, the majority quickly try to make a story connecting the cop and pop star into something more than it is.

Their association soon turns into a relationship, much to the chagrin of David and those trying to position Kaz's political future. As Kaz does his best to free -- if temporarily -- the young star from the pressures and daily grind of her celebrity life, he must contend with the fallout and repercussions of his involvement with her, all while she tries to find her true self once again.

The pop star story and related romance might be of interest to some, while those who are fans of anyone in the cast might also be interested.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
