Kings of the Evening
This independently produced drama from director Andrew P. Jones travels back to the Great Depression of the 1930s. It tells the sad saga of Homer Hobbs (Tyson Beckford), a young African-American man who wraps up a two-year jail sentence and returns home to his dead-end small town with a complete lack of prospects. Instinctively, Homer develops a rapport and begins to stick together with four other people roughly in the same boat as he is: Clarence (Glynn Turman), a zero who longs to be someone significant; Gracie (Lynn Whitfield), a down-and-out boarding-house owner who harbors a shocking secret; Benny (Reginald T. Dorsey), a street hustler who plans to relocate to sunny Florida and start afresh; and Lucy (Linara Washington), a woman whose scandalous past threatens to destroy the lives of those around her. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Wonderful, heartwarming film!


    I saw this film during its limited run (which was very sad, since it was such a good movie). It's a depression-era picture with a great storyline and wonderful actors, most notably Emmy Award winners, Glynn Turman and Lynn Whitfield, and supermodel turned actor, Tyson Beckford. I wish it had had a broader release; it had such a positive message about hope and possibilities.
