After 10 years, Patrick has returned to discover a secret that could rock his seemingly "perfect" world. In the center of the conflict is his hard-edged mother Evelyn, whose own story holds as much drama and secrecy as her son's. (Codeblack Entertainment)… Expand

60Taking control of what would otherwise be a trite and preachy fable about the need for African American families to accept their gay brethren, Devine builds a jolly and touching character from the stock figure of a Georgia mom coming to terms with her disaffected gay son.
A comedy-drama with alarming similarities to a relic from 1976, "Norman, Is That You?" In that film, Redd Foxx and Pearl Bailey were parents shocked to discover that their son was gay and living with a white lover. That's basically the same gimmick in this new film from writer-director Maurice Jamal.
