The Least Among You Movie Review


Last night my husband and I watched The Least Among You. I had been offered the opportunity to review this movie and was excited because I thought the preview of it looked pretty good.


Inspired by a true story, the movie tells of the life of Richard Kelly, a young man arrested during the Watts Riots. He was forced to do his probation at an all-white seminary or go to prison. Kelley attempts to make racial change in the school but is met by much opposition, including students,teachers, and staff.


Louis Gossett Jr. did a great job (as usual) playing the role of the gardener in the basement, who was influential in helping Kelley get through his many trials.


While the flick may have seemed to have substance, it was disappointing to watch. The plot of the movie really wasn't clear and it was hard to follow. Some scenes jumped around and we ended up lost. Although the movie had a very strong scripture reference and faith message, we were unsure of what they were actually believing God for. It's too bad because I thought this would have been a good historical story to watch, but it didn't turn out that way.


This movie was provided by Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review. Opinions are all mine.
