She's gotta have it by Spike Lee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Statuesque and charismatic Nola Darling is trying to figure out what she wants in life. She has a good job as a commercial artist and designer, a spacious Brooklyn apartment, and three boyfriends: genteel professional Jamie Overstreet, vain male model Greer Childs, and livewire bike messenger Mars Blackmon. Each of them is far from Nola's ideal man, but each fulfills a different need for her. Between her juggling act--accompanied by total honesty about who and what she's doing--and the childish squabbling of the three men, Lee makes some rather nebulous points about gender relations and the double standard. Primarily, this film announces the arrival of a seriously good filmmaker in the American cinematic firmament
