Based on Terry McMillan’s bestseller ‘How Stella Got Her Groove Back’, which had already sold over 2,000,000 copies before the film came out, comes director Kevin Rodney Sullivan’s 1998 adaptation, on which author Terry McMillan helped with the screenplay, along with Ron Bass.
Before she knew it, Stella (Angela Bassett) was 40- a successful stock broker and a warm single mom to a beautiful and healthy Quincy (Michael J. Pagan)- but 40 all the same. Her best friend Delilah (Whoopi Goldberg) convinces her to take a first-class, no-work, complete-pleasure, time down in Jamaica, where her skin will bask in the long-awaited healing sunshine and get tickled by the fine ocean breeze.
And in the midst of all these charming delights, Stella finds Winston Shakespeare (Taye Diggs). Who’s only 20. Yet nevertheless, this sensual poet manages to shake Stella’s world and turn it upside down, to the point where she’s inventorying everything she knows, the amazing responsibilities of motherhood, along with her executive corporate position and how all of that can fit with her blossoming romance…
