Shadow and Act is reporting that longtime television writer and executive producer Charles Murray’s feature debut, ‘Things Never Said,’ opens in theatres today. Tambay O. Benson writes in his review of the film:

“‘Things Never Said’ centers on Kal (Shanola Hampton), an aspiring spoken word artist using poetry to escape the pain of a miscarriage and an abusive husband (Elimu Nelson). As an LA native, she dreams of performing at the famed Nuyorican Poets Café in New York. When Kal falls for Curtis (Omari Hardwick), a poetry fan with a whole heap of emotional baggage of his own, the two must decide if they have an affair worth preserving. You could call it a grown-up love story, which points to the complexities of all relationships.”

This film will undoubtedly draw comparisons to indie cult hit Theodore Witcher’s Love Jones (1997).
