Let me make this perfectly clear... Names, ages, genders, relationships, locations, hospitals... All fake. Totally and completely fake. Any similarity to any event that's ever taken place in the history of man is purely coincidence. My thoughts, beliefs, etc. are my own and may or may not be the thoughts, beliefs, etc., of my employer, my school, or anyone I know. In fact, they're probably not. Basically, it never happened.

    Night Catches Us (2010) 
    Cast: Anthony Mackie, Kerry Washington, Jamie Hector, Wendell Pierce, Amari Cheatom 

    In 1976, after years of mysterious absence, Marcus returns to the Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age in the midst of the Black Power movement. While his arrival raises suspicion among his family and former neighbors, he finds acceptance from his old friend Patricia and her daughter. However, Marcus quickly finds himself at odds with the organization he once embraced, whose members suspect he orchestrated the slaying of their former comrade-in-arms. In a startling sequence of events, Marcus must protect a secret that could shatter everyone’s beliefs, as he rediscovers his forbidden passion for Patricia.

    I just finished watching this movie. I got it from Netflix, it is also available for online at WeWatchMoviesFree, and/or always Youtube. It also has an interview with Bobby Seale (co-founder of the Black Panther Movement), so make sure you check out the Special Features of the film if you do watch it. 

    It’s refreshing, honorable, & extremely well done. Anthony Mackie is always amazing, he always delivers in very aware roles. And Kerry Washington… need I say more? Please check this film out.
