A provocative statement that borders on racist? Yes. A catalyst for an honest discussions on interracial dating? Yes. A quirky, funny, hidden gem of a movie that instantly became one of my faves. Absolutely!
I’m Through with White Girls (The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks) is an independent, high-quality, low-budget film about a black, “underacchieving” nerd who decides that in order to have better success at dating, he will stop white dating girls, whom he tends toward for reasons that I will not spoil here. He ends up falling for a “Half-rican Canadian” who is just as unusual as he and soon realizes that his failures at dating have more to do with him than with the women he chooses. The sequence that chronicles his online dating encounters are worth the price of admission alone.
I’m not a movie reviewer but I really loved this movie so I had to tell you about it. Go rent or buy the DVD (yes, it’s worth buying) and let me know what you think.
