Writer/director Suds Sutherland (Toronto Stories, Guns) collaborates with screenwriter Jennifer Holness to tell the stories of three young Jamaicans struggling to adjust to life in Kingston after being deported from the foreign countries where they were raised since childhood. Essentially strangers in their own home land, the three lost souls attempt to navigate this strange new environment while getting in touch with their long lost roots. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

All three actors acquit themselves well, particularly Bent as Dunston, a soulful man trying to leave his violent past behind.

Rather improbably, two of the three are handed happy endings so the requirements of drama do belatedly trump political lessons in Home Again.

Audience Reviews for Home Again

This movie touches upon issues that are very common yet rarely spoken about! Home again is movie keeps you on the edge! Great writing, great acting and Lyriq is gorgeous. This movie helps you understand that there are different levels and emotions that these people go through! Finding your roots is hard enough- Can you imagine how mind blowing it is when you are forced to go back to a place that you don't know and start all over again?! Great story line!

Really strong performances from all of the cast, especially Lyiq Bent. The storyline was interesting, relevant to the current migration crisis and a fascinating portrayal of the Caribbean, a place that is too oft overlooked as a vacation destination/crime hotspot, at the expense of the stories and experiences of the people.

An interesting and important yet little known social issue is brought to the screen but the drama that fleshes out the hardships encountered by our protagonists fails to delivery on its potential.
