Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has a seemingly perfect life — a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn’t go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted.
Nappily Ever After stars Sanaa Lathan, who also serves as a producer alongside Tracey Bing, Jared LeBoff and Marc Platt. Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, and written by Adam Brooks and Cee Marcellus, the film also stars Ricky Whittle, Lyriq Bent, Ernie Hudson and Lynn Whitfield.
We can definitely tell this is going to be a very interesting film. First of all, Sanaa Lathan is one helluva actress and anything she touches is gold. Second, SHE CUT ALL HER HAIR OFF FOR THIS ROLE! She must have known this is a character she really related to or wanted to completely encompass. We also surmise that Netflix check must have been nice!
