Synopsis

Denzel Washington makes his triumphant directorial debut and Derek Luke shines in his first big-screen role in "one of the most touching, heartwarming films of the year." (Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC-TV) Inspired by the true life experiences of its title character, Antwone Fisher tells the dramatic story of a troubled sailer (Luke) who is ordered to see a naval psychiatrist (Washington) about his volatile temper. Little does he know that his first step into the doctor's office will lead him on a remarkable emotional journey to confront his painful past--and connect with the family he never knew.

Reviews

Rex Reed New York Observer | January 16, 2003

A fine film that proves the past is never too bleak -- or the future too hopeless -- to discover a productive new life, and a home and family to share it.

Ann Gorman Washington Post | December 27, 2002

A riveting story well told.

Bill Muller Arizona Republic | December 27, 2002

Denzel Washington gives a sensitive yet powerful performance as a Navy psychiatrist, and newcomer Derek Luke is a pleasant surprise as the title character.

Wesley Morris Boston Globe | December 26, 2002

For sure, Antwone Fisher is corny. But it's corny in a way that a Hollywood movie about a boy who just wants to go home ought to be corny.

Joe Baltake Sacramento Bee | December 25, 2002

The level of acting elevates the material above pat inspirational status and gives it a sturdiness and solidity that we've long associated with Washington the actor.

Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer | December 25, 2002

Watchful, flinty, unexpectedly vulnerable -- and so cathartic it could wring tears from a stone.
