Critic's Pick

'A Family Thing'

April 12, 1998|Kevin Thomas

In Richard Pearce's poignant, upbeat 1996 film Robert Duvall (right) and James Earl Jones (left) portray Arkansas-born half-brothers who grew up on opposite sides of the color line, discovering late in life that they are both sons of the same black mother. Duvall and Jones give strong performances here, but stealing several scenes from the screen veterans is Irma P. Hall, who portrays the brothers' Aunt T (Showtime Sunday at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.).
