An all-star cast performs in this film adaptation of the Tony Award winning off-Broadway hit play. In this gripping, intimate look at life in the ghetto, Johnny Williams (James Earl Jones) is a house painter who moonlights as a poet, struggling to financially and emotionally support his cancer-ridden wife Mattie (Cicely Tyson). But times are tough and the poverty-troubled streets are even tougher, and it takes every ounce of Johnny's love and courage for the couple to make it through their strife, finding redemption in The River Niger.A GATHERING OF OLD MENA regular day in a Louisiana sugarcane plantation changes course when a local white farmer is shot. Led by Mathu (Louis Gossett Jr. in an Emmy nominated role), a group of old, black men takesa courageous step by coming forward en masse to take responsibility for the killing of a white racist, whom one of their members has shot. As the sheriff confronts the suspects, the young plantation owner (Holly Hunter) stands alone in her daring defenseof this group of men, provoking racial tension that makes a compelling drama.
