Five On the Black Hand SideClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
In contrast to most of the violence-laden "blaxploitation" films of the period, this low-budget effort eschews exploitation for humanity and domestic drama. Leonard Jackson plays a barber who is also the domineering head of a middle-class African American family. Jackson is forced to rethink his values when his previously docile wife joins their three children in rebelling against her husband's retrogressive behavior.
***** 5 stars on the black hand side
A must watch. Possible as relevant today as it was 36 years ago. It is amazing how many themes of progressive behavior are the same today as in 1973....I mean Stormy Monday is great! Watch and enjoy.
