What impressed me the most about this film is the fact that although it is quite old (30 years), the issues that the film addresses (welfare fraud and welfare stipulations on women, failure to pay child support) are still issues that people deal with today.
This drama hits home, the only thing that just struck me is just how fast Claudine and Roops relationship progressed. Where was the getting to know each other? A good movie and a must have for your African American cinema collection.
Carroll and Jones are both so committed and masterful in their performances that it really elevates material that in lesser hands could be trite and somewhat embarrassing. Carroll, in particular, showed great commitment to this piece, she skillfully shed her high glamour image to play a single mother on welfare, and invested the character with humanity and dignity as readily as she exposed the character's human flaws. It is a staggering achievement for a woman who began her career as a cabaret singer. Carroll was most deservingly nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
The young actors are very good as well. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, only 19 at the time, did a great job of conveying the frustration, confusion and rage of a fatherless young man trying not the repeat the mistakes of his parents and yet fearful of going the wrong way.Read more ›
