This is a great and overlooked movie
Not only is it a terrific and creative adaptation of Baldwin's great book. It is just a very very moving film.
One review says you need to be a Christian to appreciate the movie. I'm not a Christian and I appreciate it greatly. It speaks to fundamental aspects of being human: parent-child relationships, the burden of the past on the present, the struggle to find our selves amid all the many demands placed on us by others. And yes, the place of spirituality and transcendence in all that.
It's also a crazy "who's who" of contemporary African-American actors well before they became household faces and names.
*Watch this movie.* You'll be glad you did.
