Everything But a Man

Schedule

Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4:00pm

Vanessa is sexy, smart, successful … and still single. “Everything But a Man” follows the story of a lonely career woman who, despite all her material success, is a failure when it comes to love. The film explores the paradox many modern women face: Required to think and act like men in the work world, they still are expected to behave like "ladies" at home in order to satisfy male expectations. When Vanessa begins a life-changing romance with a mysterious man from another culture, their radical lifestyle differences challenge her perspective on love and relationships, causing her to question what it means to be a "strong" woman.  The film stars Monica Calhoun (The Best Man franchise); Jimmy Jean-Louis (Joy, NBC's Heroes/Reborn), and Camille Winbush, who played Nessa on "The Bernie Mac Show," and is all grown up now in this romantic comedy from Oakland-based director Nnegest Likké.
