Three months ago, Piper met Mollie online. And Mollie changed everything. Now a knock at the door. John Sharp. Mollie's brother. He was sent to talk Piper out of the thing's she's threatening. But neither may be who they claim to be.
Bishop T.K. Wilson, his wife & two children are a respectable family in their community - Yet the Wilson kids are fighting temptations & their son Dante has thoughts other than taking over his fathers church.
After the death of their mother, three foster sisters - the shrewd business woman, the free spirit, and the caregiver - find themselves fighting for their individual dreams and fighting each other in this tale of love, lust, and tragedy.
Great Movie. Difficult subject matter to handle in a movie but director pulls it off beautifully. Acting really carries the film with the fine performances by lance gross and nicole beharie. Both actors, and the supporting cast, make this movie work as entertainment but with a message to not just young black men but to all the boys who aspire to become professional athletes. Gross' new role in the Crisis shows he is not just a one hit wonder. But this movie, Last Fall, allows us to really see his acting skills. Keep up the good work Cherry.
As for the ending of movie Cherry does it once again and lands the dismount reasonably well. The only drawback in the movie is it inadvertently condones single mother status that is so prevalent in the AA community. Otherwise, the more important message to "stay in school and don't be no fool" seems worth it.
