Indie Soul Review: ‘Big Words’


The beauty of independent films is that they often times become cult classics.

The film “Big Words” is one of those films that you will want to own. So, for the old hip-hop heads, soul singers and independent film lovers this one is for you.

“Big Words” is a about a group that was coming of age during the golden age of hip-hop in the 90’s. Due to various circumstances, the group doesn’t attain that status they were seeking. Fast-forward to the historic election of President Obama 2008. On the night of Obama’s history-making election, the three friends, once members of a promising hip-hop group, now in their late 30’s, struggle with regret, disappointment and change.

For those who came up in that era, this will spark reflection in your own life about choices you have made and whether you pursued your dreams.

“Big Words” stars: Dorian Missick (Southland), Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire), Darien Sills-Evans (Third Watch), Yaya Dacosta (Whitney) and Jean Grae. The film is available on Netflix and locations that sell indie films.
