Review

Candis’s film is cliché to the max, but it’s also heartfelt and very well acted.

Uncommonly moving: As a troubled uncle who tries to teach his adoring nephew life lessons—all the while slowly falling from grace in the young boy’s eyes—the rapper Common subtly conveys anger, vulnerability, and shame, holding together this uneven film even as it slips into a predictable crime melodrama.
