Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind The Making of “Soul Food”

September 24, 2012 ‐ By

In the ’90’s when it came to black films, you were most likely to see portrayals of gang violence, drug use or some other type of hood classic. (Nothing wrong with that.) But then there came Soul Food. There was drama and the movie was certainly entertaining; but all of it came together in the end, because they were family. Anybody who watched this movie could relate to at least one aspect of this family dynamic. We all remember the scandalous drama, we argued whether a “push” was too much and who could forget Teri, (Vanessa L Williams) pulling that knife on her husband and cousin?! You remember all of that but do you know these behind the scenes secrets?

    Excellent ‘secrets’ MN…My favorite scene was when Vivica’s character came home and the previously mute old man was downstairs reminiscing about the old days. That scene seemed like it came straight out of something that really happened in the Director’s or writer’s life.
