Incredible Subject Matter & Acting
2 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a lover of cinema, I'm rarely in a position to give KUDOS to first-time independent features because the quality is rarely up to par, given that their budgets are limited. Such is not the case with "Tate". This film was well executed from the lighting to the acting to the content/topics covered. I applaud the Director, producer and team for a job well-done. The sensitive nature of the subject matter was handled both delicately AND thoroughly to inform the viewer of the very REAL atrocities that face our children every day in this country. I attended the viewing that was held in Atlanta during the National Black Arts Festival to support actress (and Spelman Alumna) Robin Dionne, whose contribution as the Mother of the main character was indeed a powerful support to the film. I absolutely applaud the efforts of the entire team that worked on this production from conception to viewing. KUDOS!!!
