Overview

A young man tries to tie up some loose ends before he goes to war in this independent drama from director Neil Abramson. Mike Holland (Nick Cannon) is nineteen years old and has just completed his basic training as a private in the United States Marine Corps. Mike has a four-day leave so he can visit his family for Thanksgiving, and then has orders for combat duty in Iraq. Mike wants to spend time with his family and friends before he ships out, but he doesn't want to tell anyone that he'll be stationed in Iraq. While taking the bus home to Bakersfield, California, Mike meets Cristina (Melonie Diaz), and it doesn't take long for him to realize he's infatuated with her. Mike makes a date to spend some time with Cristina, but he already has a busy schedule over the next four days. Mike catches up with his little sister (Erica Gluck), his doting mother (April Grace) and her taciturn new husband (Tom Sizemore), and sees his estranged father (Chi McBride) for the first time in years. Mike also hangs out with his best friend Jake (Matt O'Leary), but discovers he's begun taking a different path in life while Mike was in boot camp. And Mike happens to meet a disabled soldier back from Iraq (Jay Hernandez) who gives him an idea of what he can expect during his tour of duty. American Son was screened in competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

    Great Movie, Don't Miss Nick Cannon's performance

    This movie is a heart wrenching, funny and unforgettable portrayal of a soldiers difficult coming to terms with the reality of having to go off to war for the first time-- set against a budding love story between Nick Cannon's character Mike and Melonie Diaz's character. Set in Bakersfield, you really get the sense of a life with no real options except to join the military if you want to get out of here and live a better life. That's the reality for a lot of soldiers and this is the first time I've seen it so realistically portrayed. We feel what it's like as those last hours tick away and you're faced with the final reality. To go or not to go to war. It's not political, it's a human portrait, it strives to capture the reality of America today, not comment one way or the other on the war itself. It does make you think though, that is for sure. And that's what great movies should do...
