    ITEM#: 3631653

    The plot of LACKAWANNA BLUES takes viewers back to a turbulent time for the African American community, all set to a soaring R&B soundtrack from an awesome selection of artists. Originally shot for HBO, LACKAWANNA BLUES is based on a one-man play by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, and is a moving coming-of-age tale. Drawing on his own experiences, Santiago-Hudson begins his story as a child growing up in the small New York town of Lackawanna. There, he is raised by Rachel "Nanny" Crosby (S. Epatha Merkerson), who provides a refuge for many wandering black folks whose lives have not quite turned out as they wished. Nanny and the residents educate Ruben in a way that no conventional schooling can provide, with the film lovingly painting a poignant slice of life from these heavily segregated times. Merkerson is exceptional as Nanny, while the ensemble cast also includes big hitters such as Rosie Perez and Mos Def among its line up.

      I bought this movie for me and for a Christmas gift for a friend. That's how entertaining I thought this movie was. I would recommend this movie, definately. It has big star names such as Terrance Howard, Harper HIll, Macey Gray, Lous Gosset Jr, Rosie Perez, Delroy Lindo, Mos Def. The main character is Nany Crosby played by S. Epatha Merkerson who really plays her role well. With all those stars how can you go wrong.

      A must to see, I saw this movie the first on HBO and was counting the days until it was released. I brought this movie three times.

    • Excellent movie.

      S. Epatha Merkerson really shows what she is all about in this movie. The depth of her character and the way she holds everyone together is amazing. Really shows the culture of the times and the inequalities that existed between the white people and people of color.
