This week, Jeremy Morrison returns with a brand new review of some cinematic offerings from days gone by with a review of one of Olive Films newest releases, “Cornbread, Earl and Me,” starring Laurence Fishburne, Tierre Turner, Jamaal Wilkes and more.
First, a quick synopsis: Set against the gritty urban sprawl of Chicago, director Joseph Manduke’s (Vengeance) coming-of-age drama Cornbread, Earl and Me stars Laurence Fishburne (Fled), Tierre Turner (The Crow) and Jamaal Wilkes in a story of adolescent friends who are forced to face adulthood when tragedy strikes. Cornbread, Earl and Me features supporting performances from an ensemble that includes Moses Gunn (Ragtime), Rosalind Cash (The Omega Man), Madge Sinclair (Coming to America) and Antonio Fargas (Foxy Brown) in a film written for the screen by Leonard Lamensdorf based on the Ronald L. Fair novel Hog Butcher.
