‘Barbershop’ May Help Black Films

Newsday reports the surprising success of ‘Barbershop’ may be changing the conventional wisdom in Hollywood that black films with good openings drop off before the movie reaches a mainstream audience. “I felt for a long time that there’s an audience out there that’s hungry and starving for great films with African-American characters, and that’s not just African-Americans looking for that,” said Rick Famuyiwa, director of the upcoming romantic comedy ‘Brown Sugar,’ starring Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan.
