Former U.S. Army lieutenant Jason Higgs (Sidney Poitier) who, after becoming a black militant during the 1960s Black Reveolutionary movement, is wounded when he pulls a payroll heist to help imprisoned "brothers" and has to hide from the police. Social worker Cathy Ellis (Joanna Shimkus) falls in love with Higgs while helping him elude capture. Loosely based on the 1947 Carol Reed film "Odd Man Out."Written by

"Sidney Poitier with slick Edgy style"
First off I loved the pacing of this film, Second the soundtrack was beautifully done, Third I loved Sidney Poitier stepping away from his comfort zone too play a slick-intelligent "Millitant", that being said I loved the overall spin on the source material. "The Lost Man" is some of Poitier best work I hate it doesn't have a DVD release, this film is a must see for Poitier fans.
