4. The Music
The songs will have you have tapping your feet and moving in your seat. With a blend of soulful songs and gospel, the music in the film does not bear down the viewer; instead, it is useful tool used to pull the emotions out of the viewer. It’s hard not to well up while listening to Hudson’s powerful voice as tries to overcome her financial burdens in the film.
