Stunning performances by Billy Dee Williams, Gabrielle Union, Leslie Ann Warren, and Zoe Saldana. Melissa DeSousa was perfect as the daughter trying to please her daddy (Billy Dee). The scene between Leslie Ann Warren and Rae Dawn Chong was very powerful. The contention between the two women in one mans life came across on screen beautifully. Hill Harpers scene with Billy Dee Williams in the housing project was powerful, sensitive and touching. Miss Unions narration of the story line is unique and memorable. But Zoe Saldana's self searching role was haunting. She emotes talent and deep feelings in her work. Truly destined to greatness. Jordan walker-Perlman's directing really tugs at the heart string with the way he displays the interpersonal relationships of the characters.
