Reelblack’s Soul Food Cinema returns on Friday June 19 at 7pm with the Philadelphia Premiere of THIS THING CALLED LOVE (2007). Written, Directed and Starring Eden Marryshow, this Brooklyn-based romantic comedy.
When a broken hearted teacher, Fred Hansen (Eden Marryshow), meet his student’s aunt, Erica Clark (Sara Pickett), their lives are in recent upheaval. Erica is dealing with her new full time job as mom to her niece Lora (Melinda Myrie). Fred is struggling to discover who he is after a break up with his overbearing fiancé who forces him to question what he really wants out of life. Their overwhelming commonalities and a little prodding from Lora allow the pair to engage in an instant and wonderful romance. Troubles arise, however, when Fred’s ex- fiancé re-enters the picture. Fred is forced to make a choice between the two but does he know what that thing called love truly is? Producer Sean Clark in attendance.

Opening This Weekend
Imagine That - Eddie Murphy returns to form as a divorced dad who learns to bond with his daughter (and her imaginary friends) through the magical powers of her lucky blanket. A lot better than you’d expect. A fun movie for kids and a lot more bearable than Meet Dave and Norbit. Worth a Look.
