Better Mus’ Come (2013)
Storm Saulter, Jamaica
Similar to its predecessors, Rockers and The Harder They Come, Better Mus’ Come has a reggae-infused soundtrack, and draws heavily on the Rastafarian movement in shaping its lead character. Beautiful visuals, and a nice, easy, down-home vibe are the backdrop for a story of a love caught in the grip of the political strife which has torn Kingston apart for so long. Its acting, particularly that of Sheldon Shepherd, who is a natural on screen, and great color and visual storytelling, make this film a modern-day Caribbean essential.
