Waiting for Angels is a 2012 drama film that stars Robin Givens, Orlando Eric Street, Cacilie Hughes, and Jacqueline King-Howell. Directed by John-Clay Scott, the film tells a story of a woman named Angela, who is trying to come to terms with the death of her son, but unexpected events lead her to find solace in a stranger. The movie begins with Angela (Robin Givens) mourning the loss of her son. She is struggling to cope with the suddenness and the tragedy of the situation. Her husband, Roy (Orlando Eric Street), also finds it hard to come to terms with the loss of their son and has become distant from Angela. Angela looks for support and comfort from her best friend, Lisa (Cacilie Hughes) and her mother, Mrs. Johnson (Jacqueline King-Howell), but both women are also grieving their own losses.

As Angela struggles with her loss, she encounters a man named Christian (Mel Jackson) who is struggling with his own demons. Angela is intrigued by Christian's story and his outlook on life. Christian is going through a rough patch in his life, and he seems to be on a self-destructive path. Despite the initial tension between them, Angela and Christian eventually form a bond and start to heal together.

Angela finds that talking to Christian and listening to his perspective helps her to see things in a different light. Meanwhile, Christian finds in Angela someone who is willing to listen to him and help him get his life back on track. Both of them soon realize that their chance encounter was not an accident and that they needed each other to heal.

As the story progresses, the characters become more fleshed out and complex. The filmmakers do an excellent job of exploring the emotions and experiences of each character. The movie is not just about the loss of a child but also about finding hope and healing in unexpected places.

The film's pacing is slow and deliberate, which may not appeal to everyone, but it allows the audience to fully experience the emotions of the characters. The cinematography is beautiful, with some scenes shot against a stunning backdrop of the Los Angeles skyline.

The acting is top-notch, with Robin Givens delivering an emotional and nuanced performance as Angela. Orlando Eric Street is equally impressive as Roy, who is struggling to come to terms with his own grief. Cacilie Hughes and Jacqueline King-Howell provide excellent supporting roles as Angela's best friend and mother, respectively.

One criticism of the film is that some of the dialogue feels a bit contrived, which can take the audience out of the movie's emotional moments. However, this is a minor quibble in an otherwise well-crafted film.

In conclusion, Waiting for Angels is a well-acted and emotionally charged drama that explores the themes of grief, loss, and healing. It is a movie that will resonate with anyone who has experienced loss and is looking for hope and comfort. The film's slow pacing may not appeal to everyone, but those who appreciate a thoughtful and reflective movie will find Waiting for Angels to be a worthwhile viewing experience.

Waiting for Angels is a 2016 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 17 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9.
