Antwone Fisher Movie Synopsis
A young sailor (Luke), prone to violent outbursts, is ordered to see a naval psychiatrist (Washington) to learn to control his anger. The young man eventually opens up and reveals his horrific childhood. Born in prison to a single mother, the boy went through a variety of foster homes and orphanages, during which time he endured physical and emotional abuse. The doctor helps him confront his painful past and begin a quest to find the family he never knew.
I thought the movie was excellent! The story broke my heart! It was beautifully done, as all of Denzel Washington`s work is .. and Derek Luke was really wonderful in the role of Antwone. I am now in the process of reading the book, "Antwone Fisher" .. my husband wants to read it next. Antwone is an inspiration.
5 STARS!!!! Excellent film. Very moving and emotionally inspiring.
Beautiful and inspiring story of the importance of family, good or bad, and how with determination and fortitude it is possible to be a complete person.
