28 April 2008 | mcmpostino
| Wonderful cast, wonderful story
This film stands out because of its universal message and, the surprising talents of Tyson Beckford. Beckford plays a humbled, small man (not an easy task for someone known for his looks and physique)and the evolution of his character is seamless. Veteran actors generously share screen time with the lesser known and yet the entire cast gives standout performances.

And, the film isn't a "black" film per features a black cast, but it's message and meaning apply to humanity at large. Subtle gestures and grand, sweeping shots make this film a must-see for lovers of beautiful cinematography and inspiring content.
