Half Time is Game Time
Last night, I saw a really refreshing feel-good movie called DRUMLINE. This movie could be considered a tribute to all the band geeks out there as it highlights all the hard work that goes into becoming a championship marching band. The story unfolds around a kid (Devon) from Harlem who is recruited to play in the band at a mostly black Atlanta University. The movie shows his transformation from a troublesome kid who plays music (but can’t read it), to a wonderful young man who embraced the band leader motto: One Band, One Sound! It truly is an entertaining movie from beginning to end. So I highly recommend.
Below is a listing of the main characters that make the movie worth seeing:
Devon: Nick Cannon
Dr. Aaron Lee: Orlando Jones
Sean: Leonard Roberts
Ernest: Jason Weaver
Charles: Earl Poitier
Diedre: Candace Carey
Running time: 118 minutes. Rated PG-13.
Movie is directed by Charles Stone III who is best-known as the director of those riotously funny Budweiser “Whassup” commercials.
