  • August the First

    2007. USA. Written and directed by Lanre Olabisi. With Ian Alsup, D. Rubin Green, Kerisse Hutchinson, Joy Merriweather. A powerful drama in which old tensions resurface—and a family is torn apart—when a son invites his estranged father in Nigeria back to the United States for his graduation party. First-time feature director Olabisi, who shot August the First almost entirely in his mother's suburban home, is remarkably attuned to the language and behavior of middle-class American life. 81 min.
