A sailor prone to violent outbursts is sent to a naval psychiatrist for help. Refusing at first to open up, the young man eventually breaks down and reveals a horrific childhood. Through the guidance of his doctor, he confronts his painful past and begins a quest to find the family he never knew.
This book is a real account of a man struggling with his future because of his past. A boy becoming a man and dealing with abuse and neglect from his childhood is a very real situation. His journey to find closure and connect with family was amazing, and I think that telling this story not only helped the real Antwoine Fisher, but also those that watch and connect with similar situations. It was a very emotional and engaging movie. I loved it!
"Antwone Fisher" has a good directing debut for Denzel Washington. An angry sailor with a troubled past is sent to see a navy physchiatrist (Washington, who forces him to come to terms with his past. A bit slow-paced at cliched at times, but the acting is good and the screenplay was actually written by the real Antwone Fisher, on whom the film is based.
