5 - And finally, Rashaad Ernesto Green's critically-acclaimed feature film debut Gun Hill Road - a contemplative, compelling drama with all-around wonderful performances, and an auspicious debut for Rashaad.

In Gun Hill Road, an ex-con (played by Esai Morales) returns home to the Bronx after three years in prison to discover his wife (Judy Reyes) estranged, and his teenage son (Harmony Santana) exploring a sexual transformation that challenges his notions of manhood and threatens what are already fragile familial bonds.

Isiah Whitlock also features.

Ron Simons of SimonSays Entertainment produced the film; he also produced Night Catches Us, which is #4 on this list, as well as Andrew Dosunmu's upcoming Mother Of George, which I mentioned earlier.

It’s a simple yet deeply affecting story.

Here's the trailer:


Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

    I really liked "Gun Hill Road" even if I thought the ending was a bit abrupt. Still, I recommend it.

    I don't know if you have picked La Mission directed by Peter Bratt, starring Benjamin Bratt in the past, but that would be a good pick for next week, hot romance with Erika Alexander. And very solid story.

    Agreed! "La Mission" is an excellent film with great performances!
