Spike Lee has some pretty solid flicks under his belt. His first feature film, She’s Gotta Have It, still resonates with people to date. The film focuses on the life of Nola Darling and how she chose to live it. With emphasis on her relationships with men, it walks us through her day to day with a selection of dudes that service different parts of her emotional being. Monogamy is a myth to her so she lives her love life as she sees fit. In this day and age, she would probably be called a Thot. That statement is challenged in an upcoming Original Series. Lee teamed up with Netflix to bring this visual into modern times. The 10-episode series, She’s Gotta Have It, hits Netflix this Thanksgiving and the official trailer has us HYPE!
The modern day revision of this Spike Lee classic looks official. Greer, Mars, and Jamie are all represented, as is Ms. Nola Darling. While the actors aren’t exactly like the originals, they have the same vibe and personality to bring the characters back to life. This series, as does the film, challenges monogamy and all of the things that come with it. The happiness, the judgement, the conflict, and the freedom that comes without living within the confines of monogamy are liberating. If you haven’t seen the original film, we highly recommend you check it. For now, press play on the trailer above and look for the 10 episode series of She’s Gotta Have It to drop into Netflix next month.
