When diabetes hospitalizes her, the dinners stop and tensions among her three daughters start to break the family apart. Two of the sisters feud continuously: Teri is jealous of Maxine’s marriage and irritated that everyone assumes her corporate salary is open to the rest of the family’s uses. Maxine resents Teri’s bossiness and insensitivity to family tradition. Bird, the youngest, newly married to an ex-con, accepts a favor from an old lover that leads to her husband’s arrest. Mama Joe’s grandson Ahmad cooks up a scheme to bring the family together, back to the table.

Fox) start bringing their problems to the dinner table in this ensemble comedy. When tragedy strikes, it’s up to grandson Ahmad (Brandon Hammond) to pull the family together and put the soul back into the family’s weekly gatherings.

I didn’t really want to see Soul Food that much but I thought I might as well give it a go. I was fully impressed. I was glued to my seat the whole way through. The acting is superb, the storyline is both funny and touching. It is an unmissable film telling the story of an Afro-American family going through hard times.
Trust me, Soul Food is a good film which left me shocked at how touching and how nice the film was.
My rating : 8/10.
This film has heart
Although I’m White, I tend to like many of the films that are aimed particularly at Black audiences. Many such films tell a deeper story than some of the superficial films that are generally made in this country (of course, there are exceptions on both sides).
The story here is very good, and is told from the perspective of a pre-teen boy with a large extended family. That family has various attributes, some positive, some negative, all fairly realistic. The boy tells the story of the various relationships, and of the importance of family.
I’m only going to single out 3 actors here, although all do a creditable job. Irma Hall as Mother Joe is wonderful as the central figure of the extended family. Mekhi Phifer is interesting to watch since this was one of his earlier roles. And Brandon Hammond is remarkably good as the young boy.
If you like serious movies about real families, I think you’ll like this one.
