Another Great Independent Film from Memphis
2 September 2003 | by (Memphis) – See all my reviews

I caught this film at the Hollywood Black Film Festival and one thing has been confirmed: Memphis, TN is a hot bed for indie filmmakers. I caught another Memphis Gem, "Poor and Hungry" a few years back at the Hollywood Film Festival and like that film, this film is equally brilliant. "The Right Questions" is a bit strange in some places as the narrative seems to waver a bit but the true nature of the film is held together with powerful performances by all relatively unknown actors and a keen eye for direction by director Benjamine Smith. The relationship between the drug addicted prostitute, Jewel (Sharon Bishop) and her son Blaine (Kellan Cade) is one of the most touching relationships I've have seen in recent films and Uki (Keenon Nikita, who was also in Poor and Hungry) is just a cool MF with enough charisma to capture any audience. Several elements along with a magnificent photography job done by cinematographer Rod Pitts make this one of the most memorable digital independent film I have seen in a while.

I give this film an 8.5 out of a 10. Definitely worth a viewing!
