I’m a sucker for the coming of age genre. So a movie about an America black kid and his dad in Germany? I’m all for it.
I thought it was incredibly well-acted, well-paced and yet, does the coming-of-age genre shtick well to boot. Craig Robinson was the star of this thing from start to finish, but Markees Christmas was the reason this film shined as the titular Morris.
I obviously came into this one a mark because of the unique storyline, but just how well executed it was made it a favorite.
