Below is the synopsis of "Waiting to Exhale," per IMDB

Based on Terry McMillan's novel, this film follows four very different African-American women and their relationships with the male gender.

Angela has been revered for her relatable role as Bernie, a Black mother scorned by her ex-husband who leaves her for his white mistress. She didn't get an Oscar nod for this role, but many fans believe she was snubbed for sure.
