Erin and Paul review two films about female pop divas, and the men who try to protect them. First: BEYOND THE LIGHTS, Gina Prince-Bythewood's 2014 romantic drama starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a troubled R&B singer and Nate Parker as the handsome cop she falls in love with after he rescues her from a suicide attempt; then, THE BODYGUARD, the 1992 melodrama starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, about a stoic security expert who finds himself falling in love with the Academy Award-nominated singer/actress he is hired to protect from a murderous stalker. A fight at the BET Awards, or an assassination attempt at the Oscars: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on SONG OF THE SEA, THE VOICES, LOVE IS STRANGE, and THE OVERNIGHTERS.
