Put this out on DVD it is worth it
30 August 2011 | by pik923See all my reviews

Good solid film. Thank you cable television for having this on. Sometimes the unexpected happens and this is one of those films. To my disappointment I never heard of it before. So it took a few years since it was produced for me to find it. And now that I found it I really hope it it released on DVD.

It is a good solid film - the script is dynamite, the cast is great - many wonderful actors - the acting also solid - there are a few weaknesses in the film, mostly because the director lost a bit of control but not enough to prevent anyone from watching this film.

I could not out guess the script - which for me is always a good sign. Twists and turns, realism and clarity, I don't want to give away the plot in any form if you haven't seen it.

This film is well worthwhile for everyone to watch. Enough of the junk Tyler Perry feeds the public - this is a good film about being black in America, being in a black family in the New York area in the 1950s. Thank you for making the film.
