Critic Reviews for Premature
"Premature" is a delicious slow-burn of a movie, the kind of coming-of-age tale that looks familiar on the surface only to reveal hidden depths of beauty and meaning.
Rashaad Ernesto Green's poignant coming-of-age drama reflects his fruitful collaboration with Zora Howard, who wrote the script with him and also stars as Ayanna, a high-school senior in Harlem who is preparing to leave for college.
It truly is an independent film in all the best possible ways: in the authenticity of it, the sense of place, in the fact that you feel like you're watching true people figuring out their lives.
To watch Ayanna quietly think her way through each situation - whether she's taking pleasure in a new experience or weighing the consequences of a difficult decision - is to watch a person coming into being, not a moment too soon or late.
