After being stuck with the guardianship of their annoying, bookworm nephew, two brothers in Compton CA have to decide if they are willing to take on the responsibility of being caretakers.
With a tone like no film that’s come before it, Hallelujah combines comedy, trauma, and drama in unexpected ways. Victor Gabriel’s direction shines, urging black me to sit with their feelings and name them, a theme that unites his body of work. I look forward to the day when Gabriel is helming studio franchises, bringing his much-needed perspective into the wider cultural conversation. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
