Just saw the Sundance movie 'Somebodies' .... much better than your average 'college' movie ... wickedly humorous and insightful look at coming of age for a young black dude at a college in Georgia. Some really funny scenes, some great lines and cool acting .... true independent but nicely photographed. Underneath the comedy is a serious story of a bunch of 20 somethings trying to find their way in a screwed up world. The main character Scottie is portrayed as a guy in the middle - not a saint or a gangsta ... just you're average guy trying to hang out, make out and stay out of trouble. Of course, it takes a strong headed young woman to really sort him out. If you're white and middle class, you should see this movie - it'll give you a fresh perspective and make you laugh. If you're black and middle class, you should definitely see this movie - it'll strike a chord and make you laugh until you cry.
