Overview

Two unlikely friends help to transform each other's lives through art in this independent drama. Robert (Brandon Karrer) is an aspiring photographer working at a photo supply store who is trying to put his life back together after the unexpected death of his best friend. As Robert's girlfriend Sidney (Jennifer Joslyn) tries to help him through this rough patch in his life, on the other side of town a boy named Marcus (Gary Gray) is falling into a life of crime under the influence of his older brother Keith (Trent Cameron), who runs with a notorious street gang. Marcus picks up an old camera one day, and when Robert happens into his neighborhood by accident, he bumps into the boy and they have a conversation about photography. Robert begins bringing his own camera along as he visits Marcus, finding a powerful and inspiring subject in the decay of the inner city. He urges Marcus to use his art as a way out of the ghetto and a dead-end life, though Keith and his friends hardly welcome Robert as he tries to work his way into Marcus' life. Focus was the first feature film from writer and director Roger Roth.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Few urban dramas can match this one for thoughtfulness, production values, and acting, as director Roger Roth tones down the genre's excesses and emphasizes the humanity. But there's plenty of action amid the tenderness, including a vividly tense, one-of-a-kind confrontation near the finale. The cinematography is crisp and colorful, and there are clever touches in each scene that keep interest high. The leads, particularly Brandon Karrer and young Gary Gray, display realistic chemistry that further elevates the material. This is far from typical urban fare. On the down side, there are several over-long dialogue scenes that might lose genre regulars who are in it for the bling-bling and bang-bang. The original title, Focus, was more elegant and fitting.

    Great Movie

    This was an absolute excellent movie. The story line was great. It is about a white photographer who teaches a young boy in the hood about photography, and this little boy's brother gets into trouble with what his mother calls his hoodlum friends. The photographer ends up rolling with the older brothers friends and gets caught up in some drama. I loved this movie. I give it 10 stars out of 5.
