Movie Info

High school basketball star Nathaniel "Cornbread" Hamilton (Keith Wilkes) is the pride of his urban neighborhood, and he appears destined for big things on the court and in the classroom. But a dare leads to a fatal misunderstanding when Nathaniel is shot dead by police who take him for someone who's just committed a violent crime. As police officers try to protect one of their own, members of the oppressed African-American community do what they must in order to find justice.

Audience Reviews for Cornbread, Earl and Me

  • Oct 10, 2009
    In a neat piece of cinematic symmetry, one-and-a-half-decades before Larry Fishburne as Furious Styles tells his son "any fool with a d**k can make a baby, but only a real man can raise his children" , little Laurence Fishburne III is getting some wisdom on becoming that man from his mom. Slightly cheesy drama about an accidental police shooting and the moves to cover it up by all and sundry by smearing the innocent victim's reputation. Of its time but still relevant today, and amongst the variable acting talents, Fishburne is a standout.
