Synopsis


Spark
Garret Williams made his directorial debut with this tale of an urban black couple trapped in a desert town of rednecks. Byron (Terrence Howard) and Nina (Nicole Ari Parker) are driving a BMW from Chicago to L.A. when they experience a back-road breakdown. Teen Mooney (Brendan Sexton III) tows them to a white-trailer-trash town where they're charged $500 for repairs. When the BMW dies again, they stay overnight in a motel, and the situation soon gets grim. The characters in this low-budgeter were first introduced in a 1996 short. Spark was shown at 1998 film festivals (Sundance, Berlin). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Much better than had expected, and it is not about racism, but about the combustible rage of some young men. The first hour of the film, I felt like slapping some sense into the Terrence Howard character, but then there was this other young man with a more concealed, deeper deadlier anger. No it was not about a town filled with seething one dimensional racists. The movie could have still been effective if all the players were of the same race.
