Night Catches Us

The year is 1976. A young, African-American man (Anthony Mackie, The Hurt Locker) returns to the race-torn Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age during the Black Power movement. First-time writer-director Tanya Hamilton does an admirable job of re-creating the historical heyday of the Black Panthers in inner-city America but wisely avoids a heavily political story for a far more personal one about families, regret and reconciliation. 90 minutes R.
