Some weeks ago Netflix launched new series and movies that promised to position themselves at the top of the platform’s ranking. “A Jazzman’s Blues” premiered on September 11 at the Toronto International Film Festival and only on the 23rd did the streaming giant add it to its catalog. Today it is positioned as one of the most viewed films.
This film joined Netflix a few days ago, but today it is all the rage and is one of the most chosen by Latin American users. In fact, it is in the Top 10 most watched films in Mexico, occupying the 2nd place, while in Argentina it is 3rd.
“A Jazzman’s Blues” is a drama film directed and scripted by Tyler Perry, which lasts just over two hours. It tells a romantic story interspersed with drama, music and some social issues. “Tyler Perry’s forbidden love story and family drama reveals 40 years of secrets and lies against a deep south juke-joint blues soundtrack,” reveals Netflix.
The shocking film tells the story between Bayou (Joshua Boone) and Leanne (Solea Pfeiffer), who are hopelessly in love. However, Leane has lighter skin than her beloved, so apparently it’s enough for white people in Hopewell County, Georgia (who have never seen a light-skinned black woman) to think she’s too. white. Her mother realizes that this is the key to social mobility, so she uses her daughter to climb the ladder and introduces her to a rich suitor for marriage.
The director wrote the story several years ago and was based on personal experiences, as well as some of his family’s experiences. Perry attempted to show real problems faced by black people in the era of Jim Crow laws, which enacted racial separation and systematized a host of economic, educational, and social disadvantages for African-Americans and other non-white ethnic groups.
The story seems to have liked the users of Netflix and for this reason, it is among the recommended movies of the week. “A Jazzman’s Blue” is available on the streaming platform.
