More About This Product

Overview

A cast of distinguished veterans and promising newcomers headline this stark prison drama from first-time writer-director Jordan Walker-Pearlman. Hill Harper stars as embittered inmate Alex, sentenced to serve time for a rape he claims that he didn't commit. His link to the outside world is his upper-middle class bother Tony Obba Babatunde, the only family member who's come to visit him in the half-decade he's been in jail. On his latest visit, Alex pleads with Tony to have the rest of the family visit him, admitting that he's in the final stages of his battle with AIDS. Through flashbacks, dream sequences, and real-time encounters, Alex interacts with the people who have shaped his life -- his parents Marla Gibbs and Billy Dee Williams, his old friend Rae Dawn Chong, and his therapist Phylicia Rashad -- and attempts to overcome the seething anger and resentment that have punctuated his time in prison. The Visit was greeted with much acclaim when it premiered at the 2000 Method Fest Independent Film Festival.

    Outstanding

    I watched this video not once but twice. this is not your ordinary run of the mill video, it touched me in way that will forever change my views about prison life and its affect on people who are in that environment. Hill Harper was absolutely wonderful in his portrayal of a prison inmate.Rae Dong Chong, Billy Dee Williams,Marla Giggs, and others were great as well. This movie should be seen by not only the general public but by people that are in ministry. It is perhaps the most profound tool that can be used for the purpose of Prison Outreach.I am personally going to purchase this movie to have in my collection.

    THANKFUL TO A BROTHER...

    The Visit ia a great eye-opener for the American family. This is a story that has to be told; a story that holds up the poster board for ''DYSfuntional family''. However, the weave of Love, Caring and Forgiveness lend to this fine story. Today's society champions men whom have hard exteriors, but forget the real man behind the issues. This story shows the Black American family at their most humbling moments. I think this film should be viewed in schools throughout the US.
