Trivia

When Peter Bratt was searching for an actress to portray "Evey", he remarked to his friend Cyril Neville (who composed the music for the film) that he wanted an Alfre Woodard-type to play the role. Understanding Bratt's limited budget, Neville contacted Woodard's agent who sent her the script and she offered to perform the role of Evey without pay. See more »

I wish that everyone could see this film.
15 April 2003 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

The talents of the Bratt family are not limited to one member. Peter Bratt has made a valiant effort in making an entertaining and thought provoking tale of the anxiety of the "Man of Color" in America. If you liked Benjamin's performance in Pinero you would have dropped you jaw at seeing his portrayal of the socially disturbed cousin Able. You could almost see the bond between the brothers, as Peter brought forth this character from within his brother. The lack of gratuitous sex or violence were perhaps only two of the reasons you may never get a chance to see this incredible film. Let me put it this way, if I could buy this film on VHS and keep it in my collection, I would let you see it, but it would never leave my home.
