With the chaos moving towards them, the trio is forced to defend the store while contemplating the future of their own personal dreams and the true meaning of family. Written by
It's a gut wrenching film that will have you laughing, crying, and thinking deeply about many things.
Justin Chon's debut as a director here really shines and I'm hopeful for the new things he'll be putting out in the future.
Don't listen to the hateful reviews here because they're angry that there's no white people in it for once. Hollywood and the general public love to hate diversity. See how they hated the new Star Trek because there weren't enough white faces. They'll gaslight minorities into fighting each other just like how they're bringing up isolated incidents like Latasha while ignoring the systemic and pervasive daggers behind our backs.
See this movie for what it is and the story it tells. A tale of two brothers and their interactions with new friends and the incidents and fallout of 1992 Rodney King.
