The Lovebirds

Recently we watched The Lovebirds starring Issa Rae and Kumail Ali Nanjiani and it was so funny we cried​,​ our stomachs hurt from laughing. At one point we even had to stop the film and stand in the middle of the living room, throw our heads back and really get the laughs out, deep long belly laughs as we doubled over and clutched at each other. Suffice to say the film is hilarious, absurd, ridiculously funny. So refreshing and heartening too, to ​experience cinema starring a black woman and a brown man as the romantic leads and to have them be central to the story instead of just token characters. We love Issa Rae and Kumail Ali Nanjiani, they’re two of our favourite​ entertainers. What a great movie.
