Girls-only trips are very necessary. A time to sit back relax and enjoy feminine energy is exactly what some of us need when the world and men are driving us crazy! We get to let our hair down, express ourselves without judgment, and solve our life issues with our trusted girlfriends. Malcolm D’s new film is all about the ultimate Girls Trip.
The chick flick/comedy stars some of our favorite girls, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish. The comedy follows the girls as they take a group trip to New Orleans for ESSENCE FESTIVAL.
If you have ever been to ESSENCE FEST with your girls you know it is a good and unexpected time filled with amazing energy and tons of black girl magic! The cast has the time of their lives from getting their hands on edibles to nightclubs to hitting Bourbon Street and making out with heartthrob Kofi Siriboe.
“Because of our history in this country and how we’ve been labeled, I think we, as Black women, tend to be a little hard on ourselves.“That feeling of always having to be on point has prevented us from being expansive in how we see ourselves and how we allow ourselves to be entertained, but I think we’re getting to a place where we’re afforded the opportunity to kind of cut loose and see all the wonderful colors of who we are. In this film we are flawed, funny, vulnerable and out of our minds! We go way over the top, just to remind people that it’s comedy.” – Jada Pinkett-Smith told ESSENCE about letting go and having fun in the July 2017 issue.

“Even though this group of women gets too wild out together, they’ve also been holding on to some things that have made their friendship feel inauthentic. Having to put all that stuff on the table is a part of growing, which is true for any relationship.”” – Jada Pinkett-Smith
