About the Movie
When three-time felon Lemon Andersen held a Tony Award for his work in Def Poetry Jam on Broadway, he thought he'd finally made it. Out of the Projects. Off the streets. Onto the right side of the law. But in no time, he was back to the 'hood...and back to the hustle. LEMON a feature-length documentary film, brings to the screen Lemon Andersen's struggle to free his family from poverty and pain as he exposes his most shocking secrets on the NY stage. It follows Lemon's desperate battle to keep the past where it belongs and move into a brighter future. Redemption may lie within Lemon's grasp when none other than Spike Lee steps in to produce his show. The stakes are high. With the power of a cliffhanger, asks the larger question - Can any of us really escape the past?
Lemon is Unforgettable
I was a huge fan of Def Jam Poetry. Out of all of the Def Jam Poets, Lemon is the most memorable. I wasn't fortunate enough to have seen County of Kings (Lemon's one man show) but so glad this documentary was put out based on its production. I made my entire family watch it and will be recommending it to all my friends!
I don't know how to do this film and Lemon and his family justice. I'm so inspired and amazed right now. I want everyone to see this film.
If you want to be entertained, made to laugh, made to cry, made to wonder about the scars that the past leaves on us all, watch this film. It is an inspiration and must see!
