If you’ve ever been the Essence Festival in New Orleans, you’ll get your life from this movie! (Shout out to all the ‘Flossy Posse’s who travel to NOLA every year!)
Girl’s Trip is everything and more and totally captures the experience of the annual 3-day festival. But the film is not just about ‘the Essence,’ it’s about the impact of lifelong friendships, the power of sisterhood and how even though our life experiences change us, we are all still the same goofy group of friends underneath all the baggage.
This film is so many things, but one thing’s for sure… it’s going to be a blockbuster!!
