2 States, One Love :-)

Whatever else it accomplishes, the exuberant rom-com, 2 States commands attention for the beguiling presence of Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhat.

Terry McMillan is known for writing stories always featuring three females leads with the  male characters supporting and always with a voice and perspective from the African American community.   272 more words
