The movie BLACK NATIVITY is a great story about family and forgiveness. Screenwriter and director Kasi Lemmons adapted the Langston Hughes play for the screen.
BLACK NATIVITY is a musical drama starring Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Tyrese Gibson, Jacob Latimore (impressive performance), Mary J. Blige, Nas, and Vondie Curtis-Hall. Since the movie is based on a play, when leaving the theatre after the screening one feels like he or she has just attended a stage play presentation. That is a good feeling. Because the actors are all good singers, the film provides a musical theatre experience.
