At the Bridgetown Film Festival in Barbados the Anderson's Cross filmmakers were sat near the exit with guards during their screening. Festival organizers were concerned about the possible reaction of the audience, due to some of the gay elements in the film. They needn't have worried, the audience cheered when the gay characters kissed and the film went on to win 'Best International Feature' at the festival. See more »
I really liked this movie. I liked everything about it. Great cast. Good acting. Good music. I liked the story and how it played out. Thought it was going to be less of a quality film than it was. So many independents rely on lack of budget to tell and film a story well. This one didn't. It was great to see a film with good African American leads playing something other than what is stereotypically played. While I have seen a strong African American family on television (The Cosby Show), I don't think I have ever seen an African American family portrayed as strongly on film. I know that is a strong statement but none come to mind. The problems of this family could have been the problems of any family regardless of their ethnicity and that, for me, was refreshingly rare. It was great seeing Michael Warren and Joyce Guy as the parents and seeing the family dynamic between them and their son and daughter portrayed so honestly. Best thing in the movie: Michael Warren.
