16 November 2004 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

I met Anthony MacKie, the actor who plays Perry, after experiencing his wonderful portrayal of Tupac Shakur in a play off Broadway in NYC and we had a few moments to chat as he signed my program. As I watched "Brother to Brother" I kept wondering how much of Perry's life paralleled the life of Anthony MacKie? I loved this movie! I felt that the characters were well developed and the contrast and similarities between modern day and the Harlem Renaissance fascinating. I find it hard to believe that this movie is only being shown at one theater in NYC. Anthony MacKie has, to his credit, roles in Manchurain Candidate and 8 mile, as well as theatrical roles in the Off Broadway "Up Against the Wind" and the (less successful) Drowning Crow on Broadway. Brother to Brother is an outstanding motion picture.
