N Secure, www.n-securethemovie.com, is a movie that was born & filmed in Memphis, TN. The co-writers, Julius Lewis & Christie Taylor, are from Memphis. The movie follows the lives of urban professionals that have the money, power, status quo to do what they want to do; however, there is a dark side.
As we know October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence don’t discriminate against race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability or financial status. The Domestic Violence hotline website defines DV as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.
The main character in N Secure was an abuser. His demeaning behavior toward his girlfriend was a classic case for Domestic Violence. He didn’t allow her to have friends, talk to her family, & she had to answer his calls immediately or she would be in “trouble”.
The movie addressed a taboo subject in the African American community and did a damn good job on how jealousy, controlling, & abuse can destroy lives.
This movie is a must see because we all can relate to something that is going on in the movie. Do you stay with a man for the stability he offers but you are unhappy and he is abusing you?
You will have to watch the movie to find out how the story plays out…but be warned it does not end the way you think it will…..
