peace through hip-hop?
Well-meaning but incredible, this film depicts the inter-racial killings and their aftermath in Crown Heights. All the acting is good, and Howie Mandel is especially a surprise. A few sad scenes, and a few funny ones. But the key to the entire plot, the friendship between a Jewish and a Black teenager, has no motivation and just seems pasted in place. ** ** ** ** **
