There's nothing like a good movie recommendation. Before editing the blog I probably wouldn't have even heard that this movie let alone been convinced to watch it. It helps to have friends like Corey who I trust to know their shit when it comes to movies. Gun Hill Road doesn't have mass appeal or box office success to get my attention so it may have passed you by as well. James and I watched it together. While at first skeptical it won us over. It's dark, suspenseful, sexy, and sweet. But most of all it's real. I highly recommend it.

MOVIE INFO from Rotten Tomatoes
After three years in prison, Enrique (Esai Morales) returns home to the Bronx to find the world he knew has changed. His wife, Angela (Judy Reyes), struggles to hide an emotional affair, and his teenage son, Michael (Harmony Santana), explores a sexual transformation well beyond Enrique's grasp and understanding. Unable to accept his child, Enrique clings to his masculine ideals while Angela attempts to hold the family together by protecting Michael. Still under the watchful eye of his parole officer (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), Enrique must become the father he needs to be or, once again, risk losing his family and freedom. -- (C) Official Site
