Movie Info

This drama was a "Wonderworks Family Movie," and tells the tale of a self-centered, rebellious African- American youth who gets a new outlook on life after he is hit by a car and finds himself awakening in South Carolina during the early 19th century. Soon he is captured and auctioned off to the owner of a cotton plantation. While working under brutal conditions, he sees other slaves working together and quietly conspiring to revolt, and when he finally awakens in the 20th century, he realizes that he must think of others and begin working to help his ghetto-bound neighbors.

Audience Reviews for Brother Future

This is one of the worst films I've ever seen. It's overlong, bland, cliched, dull, and above all: IT'S SO BORING!!!!

A charming, campy, well-meaning movie that is unfortunately slightly undone by some minor usage of racial stereotypes. (Not ALL black people like rap music.) But this is forgivable here, because in the time that the film was made people didn't understand racism nearly as well as they currently do in the present day.
