Movie Review: ****^Antwone Fisher

Some movies are such that everyone needs to see them.  This is one such movie.  This is a movie about finding where you belong.  About finding family.  And about coming to terms with your past.
Antwone Fisher (Derek Luke) is a struggling Navy Seaman.  He struggles because he is angry, and everything seems to sound racist.  Dr. Jerome Davenport (Denzel Washington) is the psychologist assigned to fix the situation.  This movie is one of those where the fixer becomes the fixed.  Atwone's girlfriend, Cheryl Smolley (Joy Bryant) shares some of Fisher's struggles, and travels with him to find his family.
He does find them.  He discovers his mother is not in a position to be a mother, due to drug addiction.  However he finds his father's family (his father was murdered by his mother) and they did not know of Antwone.  However they accept him into the family, and give him a place of honor.
