The struggle of the man, not the race
4 December 2015 | by ladymagyverSee all my reviews

This film introduces the struggles of men released today (2015) from prison, while showing the humor and compassion these men possess. It does communicate the hard choices some men are willing to make that labels them as unable to be rehabilitated, from society. The struggle of the man from the streets, not the race, this movie does a great job presenting the issue to the viewer. Most times we understand the phrase; "Scared Straight" as a direct way to change a persons self destructive behavior. This movie; "Chapter & Verse" puts this term on its head, when a man is willing to make the hard choices. After viewing the movie come back and reread this review.
