  • daniroelleb's rating of the film Cornbread, Earl and Me

    This film I give 3.5 close to 4 but climax of the film wasn't enough for me. I enjoyed the acting and the characters as they grew with the story.. The juxtaposition of the main character Cornbread and his experience with the police officers experience in a sense it made everything a little predictable. However for the time this movie was made I am proud, of the strong female characters & diverse narratives told.
