The cast is universally outstanding. Suzette Azariah Gunn presents a conflicted Nya, a mother who has done everything she can to make the right decisions, not only for her students, but for her son. In spite of this, her wards are failing. The woman's physical and emotional stress is obvious in what is a stunning performance.
The physical aging that the actors do is subtle but spot-on. Gunn ages from 17 to 60 and doesn’t play Christina at 60-ish hunched-over and fragile, just a little slower and stiffer.
Gunn and Alexander make us feel that we know these people, and, even when they are foolish or infuriating, we care about them.
