Movie Reviews

RHC | 08/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This heart-wrenching drama focuses on aspiring writer Chris Calloway, played soulfully by Adrien Brody. His past love with an African-American women, played by the exquisitely beautiful Lauryn Hill, haunts his present life, interfering with his artistic creativity, friendships, and current lover. Shadows of racism hinder his ability to truthfully love, truthfully write, and truthfully live.As we watch Chris and his friends pinball between the things they want to do, and the things they need to do, we begin to relive our own painful experiences in the field of love.Tensions rise as Chris grasps to make decisions that will forever affect his happiness, for better, and for worse.Adrien Brody, Elise Neal, Simon Baker, & Lauryn Hill give memorable performances."
Surprisingly Good

"Bought for only $1.00 at Wal-Mart. Was expecting a poorly made independent film, but was pleasantly surprised by this film. Part romance, mix in a little comedy, a little racial tension and a stellar cast, and you get a good story that is completely watchable and believable. I especially like that the movie ended with the romantic leads going their separate ways, possibly to reunite later. Added a realistic touch.

This was probably the movie before some of these actors hit the big time. Nicely done."
