The Least Among You DVD Review









The Least Among You
ISBN: 1400316944
Retail Price:  $21.99

From the publisher:

Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story.

Arrested in the 1965 Watts riots, Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) must serve probation at an all-white seminary. Although encouraged to break racial boundaries by its president Alan Beckett (William Devane), the school wants black followers not leaders. Even former missionary, Kate Allison (Lauren Holly), initially rejects Richard. A prison sentence looming, Richard meets Samuel Benton (Louis Gossett, Jr.) -- “the gardener in the basement.” As Samuel guides Richard through his many trials, Richard must choose between his dreams and his destiny.

My Review:

My hubs and I stayed up after the kids went to bed to watch this movie.  I’m glad the kids were NOT in the room.  I was not impressed with the bad language especially since it has a family approved sticker on the front of the case. 

My hubs said “the movie didn’t get into detail enough with the missionary’s hardship in Africa or the Dean’s wife’s sickness.”  He too felt - that they had missed some major details and kept you out of the loop.

So, all in all, I would not recommend this movie for Family Movie Night.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
