Synopsis


Black Nativity
Director Kasi Lemmons updates Langston Hughes' acclaimed play for the screen in this inspirational musical drama with a positive spiritual message. Langston (Jacob Latimore) is a street-smart Baltimore teen who lives with his single mother Naima (Jennifer Hudson). It's Christmas, and this year Jordan is traveling to New York City for a stay with his distant relatives Reverend Cornell (Forest Whitaker) and Aretha Cobbs (Angela Bassett). When Reverent Cornell's strict rules prove too oppressive for the rebellious teen to handle, however, Jordan decides he'd rather spend the holidays with his mother, and embarks on an eye-opening journey that teaches him the true importance of faith and family. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I like the movie but I just didn't care for all the singing just to get a point across. The talent could have been better expressed through the movie just a little more. I feel it was missing something but still it was a good movie.

    Although the story may be somewhat predictable to some, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. My wife loves to play Christmas movies around the holiday and I'm sure we will now enjoy this one as well in the years to come.

    This movie took an intersting take on the stage play of the same name, while being it's own movie at that. This all-star cast gave some of their best performance in years and is one of the best all star black cast I have seen in years.

    I hadn't heard much about this movie, but Best Buy had it on sale, so I took a chance. Wow! I have just added this to my annual holiday flicks to watch. The acting is great and the music is truly memorable. Love it!

    I enjoyed the movie I just was upset about how it ended. I loved that they all forgave each other at the end but what happened after? Did they become a family? Did the parents allow the daughter back in their home?

    This movie symbolise what the birth of Jesus Christ. Not only that but,it's about forgiveness and coming together as a family. Also, knowing who you are as an individual.
