Family Problems and Larceny
I saw this at the Chicago International Film Festival. The co-directors and screenwriters have to be applauded for mixing the age old plot about mother-daughter conflict with fresh crime drama. I found it intriguing that one of the reasons the main character was stealing was to gain attention and affection from her mercenary mom (the fabulous Lonette McKee). The detail that was put into presenting the world of boosting was excellent. The people responsible for the film explained that they have a hard time marketing it because of plot elements, having an African-American female lead (who's not Angela Bassett, Vivica A. Fox or Halle Berry), and not having a typical neat Hollywood ending. This is a good film, however; don't miss it if it comes by you.
