    What are you doing this weekend? You should be will be spending a perfectly lovely autumn Saturday night at the multiplex, taking in Beyond the Lights, a movie that charts the meteoric rise of singer Noni Jean, who desperately tries to balance the pressures and the callings of her career and fame while falling really fast and incredibly hard for a police officer named Kaz, who saved her life. There is a theory that if you save someone's life, you become responsible for them forever. So do Noni and Kaz live happily ever after? You will have to go see it and find out as you nosh on your popcorn this weekend!

    Here are five reasons this film is "must see" this weekend.

    1. Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker, who play Noni Jean and Kaz Nichols, respectively, have seriously scorching chemistry, as evidenced by the trailer and all promo materials. "Sizzle" doesn't event begin to convey what they emanated on screen.

    2. Beyond the Lights could be a career-defining performance both actors. Expect to see them again and again, but this is a worthy-of-being-owned-on-DVD film for both!

    3. It's sort of like a modern and millennial update and a fresh take on the classic and beloved '90s date movie The Bodyguard. The '90s are back and this film channels that era in a lovely, fun way, while remaining totally unique and captivating.

    4. It really is the quintessential date movie, without being a chick flick, so you and your date will enjoy the plot and characters. The film truly pulls back the curtain on stardom in a unique way, especially in this generation's celeb-obsessed world.

    5. It also stars Minnie Driver, Danny Glover and rapper Machine Gun Kelly.
