QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: With just a few days left on his parole, a young felon must contend with potentially disastrous things as he tries to remain on the straight and narrow.
PLOT:
Collin (DAVEED DIGGS) is a felon convicted of beating up a man while working as a bar doorman. Now, with just a few days left on his one year of probation that's kept him confined to areas of Oakland where he grew up, he simply wants to lay low and remain on the straight and narrow until that time is up.

That's easier said than done, what with his best friend and coworker Miles (RAFAEL CASAL) being something of a short-tempered loose cannon, despite being the father of a young boy he's raising with Ashley (JASMINE CEPHAS JONES). Collin once had a girlfriend in Val (JANINA GAVANKAR) -- who assigns the daily jobs for him and Miles as movers -- but his violent outburst turned her off and now they're simply coworkers.

While on the way home just before his curfew, Collin unexpectedly ends up witnessing a white cop, Officer Molina (ETHAN EMBRY), shoot and kill a black man who was running away from him. Realizing reporting that would likely mean a world of trouble, Collin doesn't tell anyone except for Miles. As they go about their daily routines, Collin finds himself troubled by not having done or said anything, all as homegrown people like him contend with changes coming to the city.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
