A woman along with her lover, plan to con a rich man by marrying him and on earning his trust running away with all his money. Everything goes as planned until she actually begins to fall in love with him.
Three young men go rob a man and two of the robbers get shot and the third robber shoots the man dead. The one guy left standing assumes his 2 buddies are dead, grabs the money and leaves. Johnny survives and goes to prison for 5 years, one robber dies, and the 3rd guy gets away with the money scot-free and lies to Hayden's sister that Johnny killed Hayden. When Johnny is released, Gloria meets him and tells him that he is dead just like her brother. She asks her boyfriend, Patty, to kill Johnny but he can't because he knows he did not kill her brother. In the meantime, Johnny wants to go straight and gets into boxing and Patty gets sexually involved with Gloria's mother, Liz, who is a drug addicted night club singer with a bad leg. Gloria gets rather angry with Patty and Liz and problems ensue.Written by
I saw this film for the first time today and I was often in tears throughout. It was very slow at the beginning and I was contemplating turning it off. I'm glad I didn't, Once the initial scene had been the set, the cast began to shine. Mekhi Phifer is particularly convincing (it was also refreshing to see a black man not being portrayed as a gangster)as a man who makes a mistake but wants to get on with his life. Angelina Jolie is very "real" despite her having to take a more subtle and more in the background approach to her character. The soundtrack is very beautiful and appropriate to every stage of the film and its development.
Its well worth watching, just stick with it through the slow parts in the beginning and you'll enjoy it.
