02. Love Jones(1997 | New Line Cinema)
Genius: Nina (Nia Long) and Darius (Larenz Tate) gave hope that black love was still possible (in Hollywood). The chemistry during the couple’s on-again-off-again courtship was an enthralling watch, but it was the script’s refreshing examination of love that lived in our hearts and minds way after the credits.
What We Learned: Love is love.
