American Son

American Son offers simple, solid storytelling. It's a slice of life tale, quietly introducing us to a young soldier who has one weekend before he gets shipped off to Iraq. This is by far Nick Cannon's best role. He proves that he has the skills to drive a film if given the right material. Then there was Melonie Diaz who gave a charming performance as the love interest. She needs more roles like this and quick! Another treat included the post-rock soundtrack. It does a fantastic job of setting the mood. Bottom line: See this movie, it's worth your time.
