Episode 2: I Am Danielle

Summary

Female-led drama series, exploring the experiences of three women in moments that are emotionally raw, thought-provoking and personal. The second episode focuses on Danielle, a career-focussed photographer, who meets a model and cautiously starts dating him. However, after she has fallen completely in love with Michael, Danielle discovers a disturbing secret. Dominic Savage's drama is a compelling reflection on the hope and heartache of falling in love in the age of social media, when trust and betrayal go hand in hand. Letitia Wright and CJ Beckford star

Review

“I don’t want something that’s meaningless. I don’t have the time to… accommodate,” busy photographer Danielle (Letitia Wright) tells Michael (C J Beckford), the model she’s just worked with on a shoot and clearly finds attractive. She doesn’t explain why, but she finds it hard to trust people. 

She also has very high standards. When Danielle describes what she wants in a man, her flatmate Tara (Sophia Brown) teases that, “He’s going to have to be a superhero!”, which is rather apposite as Wright played superhero Shuri in the film Black Panther. But Michael does seem too good to be true.

The faltering — and at times almost awkward — relationship between Danielle and Michael is the focus of the second of Dominic Savage’s largely improvised trilogy about women. The leads are excellent and make it feel authentic, so it’s especially painful to watch as Danielle wrestles with the knowledge that even this apparently perfect man has feet of clay.
