Review:

A good movie, but from the previews I expected a story of a man not wanting his son to play football and the reasons why, although that is part of the movie, there's much more too it.

It reminds me a lot of A Raisin In The Sun, an angry black man who's mad at the world and ends up losing everything.
It's a very long dialog film and you have to really pay attention or you miss a lot of what's going on.
Not too say it isn't it good it is very good and Denzel and Viola, put in great performances, it just wasn't what I was expecting.
