Movie Info

Actor Sidney Poitier returns to CBS, the same station which originally broadcast his leading role in 1999's The Simple Life of Noah Dearborn, this time adopting the part of a humble brickmaker in the made-for-television drama The Last Brickmaker in America. Without much pride in his job or encouragement from his recently deceased wife, the old brickmaker finds himself feeling lost and hopeless. However, when he meets a troubled 13-year-old who feels equally lost, redemption no longer seems so far away. Directed by Gregg Champion, The Last Brickmaker in America is based on a true story.

Audience Reviews for The Last Brickmaker in America

½

Its overly sentimental, been there-done that premise, and lack of motivation make this film bland and unimpressionable.
