American Son

The opening title of “American Son” deems it a “Netflix Television Event” rather than a movie. Replicating the cast of the Broadway production of the play of the same name, written by Christopher Demos-Brown, the action is set in the lobby of a Miami police station on a night when it’s raining cats and dogs. The uncredited production designer provides a credible cinematic environment—what’s going on outside the windows looks like real precipitation—but this still, despite director Kenny Leon’s manipulation of focus to change the stresses of certain shots, feels like a filmed play right off the bat.

Waiting with great anxiety in the police station lobby is Kerry Washington’s Kendra, whose teenage son Jamal has been gone from home far too long for her comfort. Gumming up her works even further is a young white police officer, Larkin, played by Jeremy Jordan, who alternates obfuscating “I can’t tell you that” evasions with condescending entreaties to calm down. He wants her to wait for another officer to get to the station to fill her in—in four hours.

'One of the challenges of writing the book was that attitude that a heterosexual man can change a woman's life and make her go weak at the knees.

"It's a goal that's right here and now and it's something that we want to experience," Curry said.

Along with having her artwork featured on Google's homepage, Zhang wins a $30,000 college scholarship. In addition, her school will receive a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant, and the company is donating $20,000 in her name to a charity dedicated to bringing clean water to schools in Bangladesh.

At this point, it becomes clear that “American Son” is a kind of chamber version of “Crash.” Soon Kendra’s estranged husband, Scott (Stephen Pasquale) shows up, and he’s both white and an FBI agent, for a double bingo. That Larkin treats him with unequivocal respect and welcome is the first never-saw-that-coming point the drama hammers on. Rather less credible are the arguments Scott and Kendra get into. When they were a couple, they put in special effort to raise the child “right,” which, to Scott’s mind, meant keeping him utterly insulated from what he considers the corrosive influence of black culture. The work is not able to address this particular hornet’s nest with any depth. What comes across more strongly is a deep flaw in the conception of the argument. When Scott decides to try and relitigate the actual naming of their child—he wanted to call the baby Seamus while Kendra wanted to give him the name of her dead brother, and she won out—you start wondering how this couple managed to last twenty minutes into their first date, let alone stay married for over fifteen years.
