The Seventh Most Important Thing (Pearsall)

If you infer a religious motif from the number 7, you are right. There’s a plot twist here, too, but I don’t want to spoil it, other than to say Myla Goldberg did it better in Bee Season. And that wasn’t the only time I wondered about Pearsall’s, ahem, influences.

The characters are pretty much cardboard, and the plot is fairly predictable.

And I sincerely regret Pearsall’s use of the “magical Negro” character, so ably spoofed by Key & Peele here, even if it was based on an actual artwork and artist.

I enjoyed Pearsall’s, All of the Above, but this one – not so much.
