Heart Warming and Thought Provoking
13 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hiding in Plain Sight is a story that may not be very foreign to those reading this review. A tale (based on real experiences) of a family effected by the recent economic crises. Kelly O'Neil Jackson gives a riveting performance as Darius Blackmon...trying to make a way for his wife and two children. Its a story of true love, compassion and faith. This is a MUST SEE movie. You will leave the theater with a sense of gratitude but also a true need to do for those less fortunate. Beautifully directed by M. Legend Brown. He has proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Get out to see this film and request that it be screened in your city! --- MUST SEE/NEED TO SEE---
