Hey thanks for your comments about PARIAH but it's NOT a hollywood movie it's a first time writer/director and recent NYU film school grad by the name of Dee Rees who produced the film on a microbudget. If you want to see a different story you can relate to, you'll have to either wait patiently (and perhaps indefinitely) or make the movie yourself. Best wishes in 2012!
Surprisingly powerful film. The story of Jackie Robinson lets you feel the emotion of the time and get a prospective you wouldn't get from reading a book or a documentary. I would have enjoyed a flashback from his youth and the ending was a bit flat but overall I found it very enjoyable emotional film.
By far the best movie I've seen this summer. Wonderful script, great casting that was humorous, heart warming and unpredictable. The only negative comment is it could have pushed a bit harder on heart strings. One final note Sam Rockwell was hysterical as Owen his acting alone added another 1/2 star to the film.
Great cinematography, set design and special effects. A few scary scenes but many slow parts. Light in Character development and storyline. You can add a 1/2 star more if your into 70's type horror films.
