The Photograph (2020)

Stella Meghie directs Issa Rae, LaKeith Stanfield and Chanté Adams in this romance where a commitment shy journalist and a curator begin a tentative affair while both investigate the life and loves of a recently deceased photographer that has ramifications for them both.

An ever so classy riff on The Notebook that is a little too somber and too distant for its own good. The acting is uniformly attractive, the jazz soundtrack by Robert Glasper is outstanding. Just a shame Stella Meghie rarely generates enough heat to cook all the quality ingredients. Constantly threatens to be a really great film, yet ends up a bit boring.
