This drama about interracial adoption is serious and affecting, thanks in large part to the presence of its two magnetic stars.

Losing Isaiah transcends the custody issue and finds drama in the black-white polarities that neither character can escape.

It reminds us that life is seldom tidy, work is always left to be done. And the resolve of these good people to do that work swells the heart.

Despite the fine leads and some well-crafted scenes, Losing Isaiah is apt to make viewers angry and frustrated no matter where they stand on the issues.

The material is emotionally wrenching, but the actors play sociopolitical totems more than flesh-and-blood characters.

This is an absorbing and involving picture, but the terms propounded here limit the story, which depends almost entirely on emotions rather than on thought.
