Waiting to Exhale
Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett head up an all-star cast in this beloved 90s film about female friendships.
Dir Forest Whitaker
With Angela Bassett, Whitney Houston, Loretta Devine, Lela Rochon
With an all-star cast including Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett, Oscar®-winner Forest Whitaker’s directorial debut – adapted from the best-selling novel by Terry McMillan – marked a landmark moment in black, female-centred 90s cinema. Savannah (Houston), Bernadine (Bassett), Robin (Rochon) and Gloria (Devine) find solidarity in the bonds of friendship, but will the search for love evade them all?
