| An incredible film I recommend to everyone
An adaption of the book 'Finding Fish'. This story is about a troubled young sailor Antwone Fisher (Derek Luke) who tells the painful story of his past to a psychiatrist Jerome Davenport (Denzel Washington). A brilliant debut performance by Derek Luke and an always stunning performance by Denzel Washington.

This movie was incredible on so many levels and I was disappointed that it didn't win an Oscar, I think it was because it was released at a bad time that's why it was overlooked. I strongly recommend this film to everyone, you'll be touched by his story and it really does make the audience become empathetic with this young man that is Antwone Fisher.

If you like inspirational true stories, then watch Antwone Fisher.

Thank you

Trivia

On the night that he learned he was awarded the role, he attended a family celebration, and was involved in an altercation with his aunt's boyfriend. The altercation ended with Bonds stabbing the man to death. He was sentenced to eleven years in prison.


Quotes

Jerome Davenport: "Regard without ill-will despite an offense." That's Webster's definition of forgiveness.
Antwone Fisher: Why do I have to forgive?
Jerome Davenport: So you can get on with your life.


Goofs

When Davenport has a session with Antwone at his home, virtually all the props behind Davenport have minds of their own, including: the small dark table the fruit sits on, the lamp, a long table, which first is off to Davenport's rear-left with the lamp and some folders on it, then directly behind Davenport. Later, the folders move to Davenport's rear-right. Also, when Antwone first sits down he's holding his glass of cider but it suddenly appears on the desk in the very next shot. We would have seen him set it there because the scene has no breaks in it. The level of liquid seems to vary incorrectly in some shots.
