Review of Raising Izzy (Mild spoilers within)
2 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I didn't say she looks like mommy. I said she's pretty like mommy." Without filter, without sentiment, Izzy Nash (Kyla Kenedy), who has, for nearly a year, been living alone with her fourteen-year-old sister, Gertie (Victoria Staley), speaks her own truth when she meets Tonya Freeman (Vanessa Williams), Gertie's teacher. Beauty shone in Izzy's mother's face and therefore, Izzy can see it shining in the face of others. Without mentioning skin color, this film tells a story of love. Metaphorically, Izzy puts on kid gloves and challenges her sister's fears toe-to-toe. No. I will not let you tell me that this woman is not pretty. No. I will not let you tell me there is no God. Gertie, who has been crushed by the loss of her mother, cannot understand how anyone can believe or see beauty in anything. When her eighth-grade teacher, Tonya, takes an interest in her, Gertie fights to keep her secret hidden. David Martyn Conley's screenplay coupled with Roger Bobb's direction challenges our fears and tests our faith through the doubts of a fourteen-year-old child and the desires of a teacher, who desperately wants children but struggles with fertility. An enchanting performance by Rockmund Dunbar permeates the screen alongside his co-stars. As a husband who struggles with reality and mortality, Dunbar provides the audience with a true sense of fatherhood. I do not pretend that this is an Oscar-worthy film. Obviously, the budget clipped and swept the residual hairs of that dream into an old duster. But what this film has is heart without smearing it all over our faces.

Overall, I recommend this film whole- heartedly for any human being who'd like to feel a connection to his or her heart or soul. Raising Izzy reminds its viewers what we're here for – to love one another fully and completely (and that family comes in all shapes and sizes). -- Allison Chaney (username: GigiCalloway)
