S. Epatha Merkerson ShinesBy Douglas Bennett George from Headley Down, England , 25 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is the simple story of a boy and his Nanna set in 60s blues-laden Lackawanna New York. All performances are excellent and the story is touching but, at times, too sentimental (but, hey, I like that...). Worth the price of rental to see S. Epatha Merkerson break out of her 'Law and Order' restraints and prove that she is a versatile actor.

Beautifully WrittenBy Ronalee (3 reviews) from Birmingham , 26 Nov 2011What a beautifully written story. Some very good acting from an all star cast. This is one for my DVD collection.

Lackawanna BluesBy a customer from London , 24 Sep 2009Surprisingly good, well acted. Great film, it took me back to a time that's now lost forever.
A slow movieBy a customer from London , 28 Mar 2009Good actors, but a slow movie and boring storyline. I lost interest after 30 minutes...
