Storyline

After ten years, Sheldon returns from New York City to Paris, Georgia. His mother Evelyn, a laundress who is stubborn, ornery, opinionated, mean-spirited, insulting, and inflexible, has sent a ten-year-old boy who says he's Sheldon's son up to see Sheldon. Sheldon comes home to straighten things out. Old arguments flare up - between mother and son and between brothers. Sheldon wants no part of fatherhood or family. Then, someone else from New York shows up at Evelyn's door, bringing a new set of challenges. Will this family ever stop airing its dirty laundry? And what of Sheldon: where is his pride? Can he, in the words of James Baldwin, go where his blood beats and live the life he has? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent MOVIE
5 April 2008 | by an3232991754See all my reviews

I saw this movie twice this morning, love it already. I love the story line and all the characters were in place. I think the writer/director Jamal did a wonderful job w. his first project out the running gate. I'm not impressed by much, but I do enjoy great films. Wish I had of supported this film on the big screen. (I didn't see any trailers on it) Jamal, be prepared for the haters to roll in...jealous because they don't have anything out there and you did it! It's what every household goes through. I know I did w. my family. As my own cheerleader, I left Mn. to pursue my dream as a filmmaker/writer in Hollywood. I had to do it. I to barely speak w. my family...(just my four kids) Sometimes people don't see your vision and their not supposed to. Your dreams and visions are your and no one else's. But if we don't get away to pursue our dreams you you will slowly die inside.

Sometimes we can be our own interruptions.

So I say to you, good job Jamal. I hope to meet you soon and work w. you in the near future.
