‘Good Hair’ Shines At Box Office

goodhairIn a limited release, Chris Rock’s Good Hair brought in over one million at the box office, even though it was only playing in 186 screens. The film’s producer, Nelson George, told BET.com, “We did well over $1 million in only five markets in the opening weekend with high per screen averages. We are extremely pleased with that start. Word of mouth about the film online has been amazingly positive.”

From Oprah to Wendy Williams, everyone has been talking about Good Hair. In addition, the film has received rave reviews from nearly every major outlet: The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and the legendary Roger Ebert.

George continues, “This Friday we open up in Canada and then Octobr 23rd we go wide in the States, hitting 600 theaters every place black folks rest their head. We hope to go down as one of the most important docs of 2009 and feel we are well on our way to fulfilling that goal.”

Congrats to Nelson George, Chris Rock, Nia Long and everyone else involved in Good Hair.  The movie is clearly one of this year’s best.

Not only is the documentary funny, it’s educational. With Chris Rock, you expect funny, but this documentary should wake some of us up to the fact that the hair style doesn’t matter — togetherness does.

Please take a moment to check out my documentary film BLACK HAIR

It is free at youtube. 6 parts including an update from London, England.

It explores the Korean Take-over of the Black Beauty Supply and Hair biz..

The current situation makes it hard to believe that Madame C.J. Walker once ran the whole thing.

I am not a hater, I am a motivator.

Plus I am a White guy who stumbled upon this, and felt it was so wrong I had to make a film about it.

self-funded film, made from the heart.

Can it be taken back?

It’s about time someone was brave enough to make a movie about what really is good hair. i’m a mulit-mixed woman my hair is nautrally curly and i get it straighted sometimes and i love my hair eiher way as long as it’s combed.Woman need to just be themselves and if people don’t like them for who they are then they need to be around people who do and pray for the others.
