Drama
Love. Family. Identity. Acceptance. That’s what life is all about, especially for a helpless infant abandoned by his biological parents and left to suffer the emotional neglect as well as the physical and sexual abuse inflicted by his heartless foster family. Antwone Fisher is that young victim who has written this autobiographical screenplay in order to prove that a thriving spirit still can prevail after a lifetime of hardship. Newcomer Derek Luke stars as the title character with infectious charisma as he faces his troubled past with strength and determination. Not only does Denzel Washington co-star as a caring psychiatrist who offers the conflicted young man inspirational advice and a fatherly relationship, but he also makes his directorial debut with this touching true story that accentuates the importance of those four values in a way that viewers will not forget.
