Beauty Mark is a 2017 drama film that tells the heartwarming story of Angie, a struggling single mother who is trying everything she can to secure a better future for her two young children, Izzy and Frank. Angie works as a makeup artist in a low-end beauty salon and is always exhausted from long hours of work. Despite the difficult circumstances, she is determined to provide her children with a better life and does her best to ensure they are happy.

The film is set in a predominantly African-American neighborhood of Philadelphia, where poverty and crime are rampant. Angie and her children live in a small apartment that is surrounded by drug dealers and gangs. In spite of the challenges surrounding her, Angie never loses hope and remains optimistic that her hard work will eventually pay off.

One day, Angie meets James, a charming and well-to-do businessman who offers her a job opportunity in his beauty salon. Although she is initially hesitant, Angie eventually accepts the offer as this could be the break she needs to provide a better life for her kids. With the help of her best friend, Ruby, Angie manages to juggle her new job, her kids, and her old job working at the salon. However, things start to unravel when she realizes that James has ulterior motives, and his true personality and intentions are far from what she initially thought.

The film's themes revolve around poverty, hard work, perseverance, and the lengths a mother goes to provide for her children. The story is also a commentary on the socio-economic issues that plague many urban neighborhoods in America, where poverty and crime seem to be perpetuated from one generation to the next. Beauty Mark explores the effects of growing up in such an environment and how those experiences shape the lives of people and their families.

Madison Iseman delivers a powerful performance as Angie, breathing life into her character and making her relatable to the audience. Her portrayal of a struggling single mother trying to make ends meet is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Jeff Kober gives a compelling performance as James, the businessman who promises the world but delivers something entirely different. His character serves as a reminder that not all that glitters is gold.

Deirdre Lovejoy's portrayal of Ruby, Angie's best friend, is excellent, bringing humor and levity to an otherwise serious film. She plays the role of the supportive friend who is always there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on. Ultimately, the cast's chemistry is on point, bringing to life a deeply moving and touching story that will resonate with audiences long after the credits roll.

Overall, Beauty Mark is an excellent film that explores the ties that bind families, the effects of poverty, and the power of perseverance. The story is interwoven with themes of hope, desperation, love, and sacrifice all rolled into one. It is a movie that reminds us how far we can go for the ones we love and how resilience in the face of adversity is amongst the most admirable qualities any person can possess.

Beauty Mark is a 2018 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.4.
