Starring Danny Glover, Paul Butler, DeVaughn Nixon

A middle-class family’s stable life in Los Angeles is upended by the arrival of Harry (Danny Glover), an old friend from “down home.” Their charming guest soon begins to exert a sinister control over the family, exposing buried tensions and old wounds. Blending carefully observed realism with jolts of the fantastic, this mysterious drama from director Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep) was hailed by The New Yorker as “a vast and deep vision of black American modernity.”
