Familyhood is an entertaining movie that moves the audiance towards the ending. However, the begining was a bit weak. We are presented with an arrogant actress who sees her career coming to an end, her relationship shuttered and her chances of having a family lost. The most, actually, interesting part was the student's story. The movie starts to offer some solid entertainment after the two women start living together and they form a family. However, it goes back to a weak downhill when the leading lady ignores the girl and focuses on her career. That's when the best performances are introduced and the movie hits a darker point. The ending, though, was satisfying. And the character development really good. So, seven out of ten.
