This is special to me as it was my first feature film. I'll never forget this experience and I'm grateful for the chance Tyler Perry took by letting me take on such a heavy role with very little professional experience at the time.  

 

 

 

 

...FILM CRITIC REVIEWS...

Hollywood Reporter: "The best performance comes from young Hope Olaide Wilson, who plays April's bruised, cynical niece with just the right chip on her shoulder."        

 

Daily Variety: "Perry has armed himself with two formidable performers in Henson and young British thesp Wilson, who plays the eye-rolling adolescent so convincingly, a well-timed smile can transform her character completely."       

 

FilmCritic.com: "Hope Olaide Wilson is excellent as Jennifer, her aggressive attitude masking a horrific childhood of pain. She has a last-act confrontation with her aunt that is startling in its raw honesty.
