Carbon Copy (1981)
Movie InfoGeorge Segal plays rich and surly California executive Walter Whitney, who learns out-of-the-blue that he has a 17-year-old black son, in Michael Schultz's lightweight Carbon Copy. When his son Roger Porter (Denzel Washington) arrives, Walter tries to pass him off to his neighbors in the restricted all-white suburb as a sociological experiment. But when he eventually confesses his parenthood to his wife Vivian (Susan Saint James), his world is turned upside down. In a flash, all the trophies of upper-class white respectability are removed -- he loses his job, his credit cards are revoked, and Vivian throws him out of the house.

When he is compelled to manual labor, Walter comes to understand the troubles his son goes through. … More

Sem saber se pretende ser uma comédia, um drama ou uma denúncia sobre preconceito racial, este medíocre filme salva-se apenas pela curiosidade de ter servido como veículo de estréia para Denzel Washington.
Audience Reviews for Carbon Copy
Older movie but a very young Denzel Washington's first role. Interesting this was made in 1981 and the storyline could be a modern movie. I liked George Segal in this one and Jack Warden is pretty good too. This movie has some funny parts and although dated is not too bad.More
