To the delight of fans, Netflix renewed She’s Gotta Have It for a second season. To catch you up, this Netflix original is a remake of the 1986 movie. Both movie and TV show are directed and written by Spike Lee.
A Little History
She’s Gotta Have It is a story about a black woman name Nola Darling. She happens to be in sexual relationships with three different men; Greer Childs, The Cultured Model, Jamie Overstreet, The Investment Banker, and Mars Blackmon, Da Original B-Boy Sneakerhead. Nola is an artist in her twenties who is based in Brooklyn trying to find herself, as well as divide her time between friends, job, and three lovers.
In the series, DeWanda Wise stars as Nola Darling; Cleo Anthony is Greer Childs; Anthony Ramos is Mars Blackmon; Lyriq Bent is Jamie Overstreet; Margot Bingham is Clorinda Bradford, and Sydney Morton is Sheryl Overstreet.
DeWanda Wise is brilliant in the modern day role of Nola Darling. She plays the 1986 character and is as effervescent as the original Nola. Nola Darling is a proclaimed “sex-positive, polyamorous, pansexual.” While the original film was shot in black and white, Wise’s performance brings Nola’s world into full color with a millennial twist. Compared to the original Nola, Wise portrays her version as;
an enigma who frustrates her various lovers by refusing to commit, Wise’s Nola is an ambitious, fully realized woman who finds the nonstop attention of men both suffocating and exhilarating.
