A picture of hard life...
22 June 2005 | by (Dinosaur Canyon) – See all my reviews

With no help from a working father, a mother of five children is left alone to deal with the hardships and struggles of life in a bad neighborhood.

Oprah Winfrey, as LaJoe, struggles to find a new place and to better the living for her children. Soon she had gotten robbed by a fraud contractor, directing her to a new home address that don't exist. Meanwhile, Lafayette follows the bad road. He hangs out on the street and roles with his gang members. Pharoah, the youngest brother, puts effort to getting good grades and stays out of trouble. John Paul aka. J.P., father of the children, loses his job and requests permission to stay with the family for a few days and trouble arises.

I think the directors of this film had a great concept for this story. Interesting story that takes place in a bad neighborhood. I've watched it many times and I'll continue to watch it.

9/10
