QUICK TAKE:
Drama: The personal assistant to a demanding diva-singer hopes to produce a young talent she's discovered.
PLOT:

For the past three years, Maggie Sherwoode (DAKOTA JOHNSON) has worked as the personal assistant to Grace Davis (TRACEE ELLIS ROSS), an eleven-time Grammy-winning singer who's known worldwide, but hasn't had a new record in the past decade. While Maggie tends to Grace's personal needs and house manager Gail (JUNE DIANE RAPHAEL) handles her property, Grace's long-time music manager, Jack Robertson (ICE CUBE), wants her to sign on for a residency in Vegas and thus make "easy" cash without having to tour around the world.

A wannabe producer, Maggie -- who lives with her roommate, Katie (ZOE CHAO) -- would love to help Grace put out a new album but has to settle on singer-songwriter David Cliff (KELVIN HARRISON, JR.) who she meets by chance one day. Not telling him who she works for or that she's brand new at being a producer, Maggie convinces David to work with her cutting an album. But as she tries to do that in her off-time, that and a budding relationship with David mean that her job working for Grace might be up in the air.

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.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
