It is my belief that fathers are some of the most influential men on the planet. And this story focuses on a dedicated, loving father with a troubled past. This is a true and tragic tale told well by young director Ryan Coogler. It had great acting by Michael B. Jordan and was made with a modest budget of less than a $1m. I can't say anything further about the film without spoiling it. Just know that it's worth seeing and supporting now while it's in the theaters. If you're like me and crave good filmmaking this is one way to reward it's practice.
