"Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" (aka "The Better Man") opens in theaters Friday (Feb. 8). I did a phoner with director/writer Malcolm D. Lee last Saturday and filed this story. He's currently in town shooting "Soul Men." We had a good conversation. He seems to enjoy The Shreve, partly because it's easy to get the work done.
Since I was unable to review "WHRJ" in advance, I'll be heading to the Regal Cinemas at the Louisiana Boardwalk on Friday for the 11:10 a.m. screening. If you see me, throw a tub of popcorn. (No butter, please.)
