Netflix has released the gorgeous poster and announced “Nappily Ever After” starring Sanaa Lathan will premiere on September 21.
The film is an adaptation of Trisha R. Thomas‘ bestselling novel.
“Nappily Ever After” centers on Violet Johnson (Lathan), who has a seemingly flawless life until an accident at the hair dresser causes things in her life to unravel and she begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she really wanted.
She starts to put the pieces back together with a little help from a soulful barber and his young daughter. Violet finds the courage to cast off some of the things that she didn’t really need, starting with the perfectly straightened hair, and find a life that has real meaning.
This is the role Sanaa Lathan shaved her head for.
The actress tweeted, “Can’t wait for you guys to see this one. #NappilyEverAfter ??♀️ our new fairytale for the modern woman.”
I’m excited about this film.
