AmericaDVD - 2009
Rosie O'Donnell gives an inspired performance in a dramatic and enlightening story about the plight of this country's forgotten youth. America (newcomer Philip Johnson), a 16-year-old biracial boy, seems like just another statistic from a broken foster care system when he arrives in a residential treatment facility where psychiatrist Dr. Maureen Brennan (O'Donnell) works. Through a series of confrontational sessions, Dr. Brennan helps America find the one thing missing from his entire life: hope. Co-starring acclaimed actress Ruby Dee, AMERICA is a powerful and provocative journey that will stay with you forever.
