(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

MASTER is a surprisingly effective story with high production values. We start out wondering, "Is this a ghost story? A polemic? Or what?" The answer is gradually revealed, with some surprising turns. While "Master" may make people initially think of slavery, here it refers to the position in a fictional college (Ancaster, "The College on the Hill") that is filled by one of the three Black women who form the primary characters. (The three actresses--Regina Hall, Zoe Renee, and Amber Gray--give excellent performances.) And the Master in the film is discovered to be very different from the Master in slavery.

Released theatrically 18 March 2022. Rating: low +2 (-4 to +4) or 7/10
