My Brother's Wedding

Film

Time Out says

A young working class black man living in one of LA's seedier ghettos is having problems with his sense of duty to others, bothered by his brother's forthcoming marriage to a wealthy doctor's daughter, and hanging around with his wastrel ex-con pal against his family's wishes. Somewhere between domestic soap and Mean Streets, Burnett's low-budget film confronts a number of universal dilemmas without ever becoming turgidly heavy. Overlong, perhaps, but the witty script and generous characterisations often work wonders.
