Antwone Fisher


antwonefisherYoung seaman Antwone Fisher (Derek Luke) keeps getting into fights; a Navy shrink (Denzel Washington) tries to understand what makes him tick.Ā Washingtonā€™s directing debut looks like the movies he usually appears in. Itā€™s a solid, sentimental drama that knows how to be compelling without artsy camera work. The director is also generous enough to let a newcomer dominate the screen; he’s just there as the shrink to lend Luke support. Step by step we learn more about Antwone and the troubled childhood that has shaped him. Results are believable and emotional; a well-acted drama, but it falls short of greatness.
