About the Movie
After three years in prison, Enrique (Esai Morales) returns home to the Bronx to find the world he knew has changed. His wife, Angela (Judy Reyes), struggles to hide an emotional affair, and his teenage son, Michael (Harmony Santana), explores a sexual transformation well beyond Enrique's grasp and understanding. Unable to accept his child, Enrique clings to his masculine ideals while Angela attempts to hold the family together by protecting Michael. Still under the watchful eye of his parole officer (Isiah Whitlock Jr.), Enrique must become the father he needs to be or, once again, risk losing his family and freedom. Can a father's fierce love for his family overcome his street-hardened ideas about manhood and end the vicious cycle controlling his life? Writer/director Rashaad Ernesto Green's first feature film is an intricate portrait of a family divided told with sensitivity, gentle humor, and a deep understanding of the environment that shapes its people.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The writer and director, Rashaad Ernesto Green, relies too often on gender cliches...
Fresh: Before some predictable, freedom-threatening recidivism on Enrique's part, the film exhibits a simultaneously anthropological and sensitive interest in Michael's day-to-day life...
Fresh: Though two late plot developments are borderline-contrived, Green's direction is marked by mature dramatic and aesthetic understatement.
Fresh: In writer-director Rashaad Ernesto Green's assured hands, "Gun Hill Road" manages somehow to be gritty, delicate, in your face and nuanced at the same time.

I got movie on HDTV it wasn't hd
The sound is poor it was off I had to go and pause and then play again Why does that happen
The movie was good I give it a
Loved it. Great script, great actors and a really good look into a Hispanic household dealing with a transgender teen. The masculine conflict versus the soft masculine yet highly feminine persona is real.
