Full movie description "Black and Blue":With a meth-addict for a mother and a non-existent father, AMBER (17) doesn't have much in this world, except for one thing...her music. Through circumstances beyond her control Amber ends up on the streets on Los Angeles. Navigating her way through the world of the homeless, Amber finds solace in a run-down music store where she meets an old-time blues musician, BILLY. Billy's life has become outdated. Not needed. And unnecessary. Having lost his daughter many years ago, Billy unknowingly looks to heal some of his wounds by helping Amber. Living on the streets there is also a group of kids that perform music on the Long Beach Promenade for money. Amber finds herself being drawn to this group. She eventually starts to hang with these kids, using her musical abilities to pay her way. Over the course of a month, Amber finds that sometimes we can find acceptance in the most unexpected places. That sometimes things aren't always so black and white because sometimes the pain we all carry ...
Reviews of the Black and BlueI saw Black & Blue at a local film festival. I've been wanting to get a copy but I can't find it. This is a shame because the movie is an uplifting story that would be great for teens! The story is very basic. It's about an abused runaway teen (Christine Evans) from who comes to LA to escape her hellish life in Arizona. Instead of finding a caring relative to take her in, she receives even more abuse, and turns to the streets. There she finds a place with other misfit teens who are squatting in a warehouse. They are disgusted with the way the world has treated them and turn to drugs for escape.
But they are talented, and eek out a living playing music on the streets for pocket change. The lead character has to decide if she will fully join the group by becoming a druggie, and accept her that life will never amount to anything. Or....
She can try to pull herself out of the gutter and bring her new friends along with her. She is given inspiration -- you might say divine inspiration -- by an old blues musician.
While this character is written to fit the stereotype of the "wise old negro," the actor imbues him with a charm that really convinces you he could inspire a young, talented but highly confused teen girl.
Christine Evans, a Christian pop singer, is very good in the lead. I don't know if she ever acted before but I believed her. While her friends are a bit too well-scrubbed (and chaste!) to portray real street teens, they are decent actors.
The street teen is a real and horrible problem in LA... I know because I volunteered to work with them. While most of the actual teens never break free, a film like Black & Blue might be helpful to teens who've yet to go underground. The spiritual message is there, but it's not overt or obnoxious. The open-minded viewer can read into it and hopefully get something more than simple entertainment from this film.
I don't know anything about direction but it has a good pace, and the songs (all written by Evans) are catchy and uplifting. If you can find it, rent Black & Blue and watch it with a teenager!
