What happens when four African American women take the topic of interracial dating and create an indie film? You get an entertaining but honest film. Talented writer Courtney Lily (My Boys, Arrested Development, Everybody Hate Chris), director Jennifer Sharp, actress / producers Phyllis Johnson and Lia Johnson capture magic in a bottle. Originally, the title of this movie was The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks. The distributors forced the filmmakers to change it to I’m Through With White Girls since they felt it was more catchy. Don’t let the title throw you off.
The film is about what happens when a person thinks that their problems in love are due to one thing and they find that their problems are due to themselves. Jay Brooks (Anthony Montgomery) is a hip black comic book artist who comes to the conclusion that his problems in love are due to the fact that he has only dated white women. What he finds though is that his problems are of his own making and that race and class had nothing to do with it.
You will enjoy this movie because it is not a stereotypical movie. The movie has a colorful mix of characters surrounding the love story. The film addresses growth for several characters in the movie. Actors Lamman Rucker (Meet the Browns, Why Did I Get Married Too), and Richard Lawson add great support to the film. This indie film talks about what one will do for love and how it can cause one to overcome their deepest fears. The dancing done in the wedding reception scene will have you falling out of your chair.
