The Best Man (1999)

What seems like an average rom-com has become a Black cinema classic thanks to captivating performances by Nia LongSanaa LathanTaye Diggs and Terrence Howard. It was a breakthrough film for Diggs and Howard, who went on to illustrious careers on the big and small screens. All eight principal cast members were nominated for NAACP Image Awards. And to the delight of fans, a sequel is due out this Christmas!
