Things Never Said

An unhappily married Los Angeles waitress (Shanola Hampton of TV's Shameless) finds her voice at local poetry slams in this deliberately paced drama. Her ex-athlete husband (Elimu Nelson) is bitter and mopey well before he loses his crappy job, and so heedless of her needs that he doesn’t notice when she begins seeing a guy with his own emotional baggage (Omari Hardwick). In his feature-film directorial debut, veteran TV writer Charles Murray (Third Watch) shows his small-screen roots by overrelying on tense, weighty exchanges to advance the narrative, but Hampton's steely performance makes them pay off, as the poet learns to wrest truth from pain.
