The Least Among You - DVD Review

I haven't seen a movie with Lou Gossett Jr that I didn't love, and The Least Among You is no exception.  Also starring the wonderful William Devane, Lauren Holly and Cedric Sanders, the cast alone is top-notch.

The premise of this movie is that a young enrolls in a seminary to make something of his life, to get out of the ghetto.  But what he doesn't realize until he arrives is that he is the first black person to attend.  His life is full of obstacles and strife as he and the other people learn to adjust.  It's not an easy road, but he and some of the others are better for it.

The movie is very well done and kept me captivated and mesmerized as the story played out.  Good thing I got my popcorn beforehand! It is family approved, so everyone can watch it, and the message it sends is a strong one.  If you get a chance, rent or buy this movie!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
