Redemption Road
In Mario Van Peeble's new film Redemption Road, two seemingly different men (Michael Clarke Duncan, Morgan Simpson) embark on a music-steeped journey through the American South, learning along the way that life isn't about where you end up - it's how you get there that matters. Somewhere along the 900 miles between Austin, TX and Huntsville, AL the two men become unlikely friends. However, every road has an end. In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A lightly enjoyable road pic about a circuitous road to redemption, Black, White and Blues offers simple, down-home pleasures while spinning an undeniably familiar but emotionally satisfying tale."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Hope and healing wait at the end of a big-hearted musical road trip."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"There isn't a moment in Redemption Road when you feel like walking out; nor do you take the finished film with you. It's a solid piece of work, recycled to a degree, but satisfying."
‑ Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
"Battling-buddy road movie carries viewers on an entertaining ride into blues country."
‑ Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
"'Brother knew how to tell a story,' Michael Clarke Duncan says, admiringly, of Shakespeare. The same can't exactly be said of this earnest calling-card indie."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"a sterilized and predictable version of life that plays out like a very special movie of the week -- albeit one with a nice soundtrack."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Jefferson has nowhere to go but up -- and eventually he gets there (note the title) -- but, boy, does the getting there take its sweet time."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
