ACRIMONY: Lessons to Learn from the EPIC Movie



ACRIMONY: Lessons to Learn from the EPIC Movie

Here are few lessons every one out there should learn from the Psychological thriller Movie ACRIMONY produced, written, and directed by America’s Tyler Perry.


The movie which stars American actress, singer, and author Taraji P. Henson as [ wife ] and Jamaican-Canadian actor Lyriq Bent as [ husband ].

The movie had a young lady Melinda ( Taraji P. Henson ) who met a young, smart, handsome and brilliant Man Robert ( Lyriq Bent ) while in college.  They first met when Robert bumped into Melinda on a rainy day; in just a short while, Melinda saw the Man of her heart and yes they fell in Love.

Melinda’s Mum died shortly after leaving her some good amount of money and her sisters too. Melinda got deep in Love with her guy but her sisters were never in support of her relationship as Robert had no job and was only on some college scholarship.

Below are what Everyone should learn from the Film and not just watch and sympathize with Either Melinda or Robert.

Love between the two brought about them getting married as much as Melinda’s sisters never wanted them together so much they did not show up at their wedding in Church. As Love Conquers All, Melinda went against her sisters advises and went on with the man of her heart.


As their marriage went on, Robert in His own way kept requesting for money from His wife Melinda. Off the money left to Melinda by Her Mother, she kept on fulfilling Robert’s money request though she was running out of funds.

Melinda kept supporting her Hubby as she runs out of funds until she finally did run out of funds that they had to Mortgage Her Mum’s house  in a quest to keep the family going and realize Robert’s battery Idea success ( making sure His prototype is perfect and ready for investors ).


Robert is certainly a brilliant Man who had faith in His battery idea despite never getting a call of all the letters He sent to Prescott ( the multi-billionaire investor ). He pressed further to make sure His prototype got better through the years of His letter rejection which He never stopped sending even as they had no money left of them in Melinda’s account ( PERSISTENCE  ).

He kept on sending His letters to Prescott’s Company in high hopes of sealing a deal someday from His time in college until He was already a full grown man.

KNOW WHEN SHIFT FOCUS ( a little of it )

Robert could have had His dreams earlier than it came if He had only thought of doing some other jobs to keep food on the table and also help them keep Melinda’s Mum’s House. He only thought of His big dreams but never of what He needed to do to keep His family good.

If Robert had chosen to do some other jobs, He probably could have realized His dreams earlier as he could have gathered some money to further enhance His prototype and maybe put it out there in the Market where not only Prescott but several other Investor would have to bid over His battery Ideas.

Whatever decisions we make ourselves, we get to face the consequences simple because we made them but the consequences seem so severe and worse whence we let Our decisions be influenced by others.

Then Regret sets in as Melinda did when Robert’s Battery Idea finally hits ( she had already divorced Robert as suggested by Sisters ) when Prescott reconsidered the first $800, 000 deal He offered Robert which took even Robert’s intellectual right and turned it into a Multi-million Dollar deal which retains Robert as the Intellectual Owner of the Battery Business.

If only Melinda had known the battle was Over and lost already, she’d not go ahead destroying Diana’s Wedding dress, going up to Robert to seduce Him ( after she had said they’ll never get back together before realizing what she lost already ) and even going to the extent of shooting Robert on their Honey Moon boat ( Mrs. Gayle ) which had the Court ordering Her into a forceful therapy.

She could have walked happily away with the $10, 000, 000 ( Ten Million Dollars ) Robert gave her including getting Her Mum’s house back.

Everything could have still worked out fine if only Diana and Robert kept their personal stuffs personal and not always filling up their social media pages with the Private life activities knowing when what had earlier transpired between Robert and Melinda.

Always endeavor to choose between what goes up on social media and what You should keep private to You alone. It most times help to avoid many issues in the world today.

Many people today live all their lives on social media as every of their daily life activities are put up on their social media pages. Be careful, you don’t know who is watching and who is not happy with You or Your success.


Perseverance is Key in whatever anyone anywhere is doing or maybe going through, if only Melinda could have persevered a little more with Robert, she could have had all they both designed in their minds together come to fulfillment with just the both of them and not someone else taking her place.
