Filmmakers positive message for our youth, The choices made in life and their consequences.
28 April 2015 | by mlkhilSee all my reviews

The movie "Brotherly Love" reminds me of such classic INDIE movies like "Cooley High" "Boyz in the Hood" and "West Side Story" which I have not seen in a long time. The casting is phenomenal! And the writing and directing was genius! The city of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia and other urban community adults and youth can relate to this movie personally by taking you inside the Taylor home with their struggles of single parenting, unemployment, drugs, violence, hopelessness and dreams. Which Kept me on a roller coaster ride from beginning to end! This movie has an awesome twist; no one I discussed it with expected the ending, surprise, surprise! This new generation filmmaker has a positive message for our youth and so much needed, (The choices made in life and their consequences). This movie deserves attention from Hollywood. LOVED IT!
