Publisher's Description

Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story.

Arrested in the 1965 Watts riots, Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) must serve probation at an all-white seminary. Although encouraged to break racial boundaries by its president Alan Beckett (William Devane), the school wants black followers not leaders. Even former missionary, Kate Allison (Lauren Holly), initially rejects Richard. A prison sentence looming, Richard meets Samuel Benton (Louis Gossett, Jr.) -- "the gardener in the basement." As Samuel guides Richard through his many trials, Richard must choose between his dreams and his destiny.

    I was greatly disappointed by this movie! It was very slow and hard for me to focus! The one thing that greatly upset me was when he cussed in this movie with it being a word that I would not want my children to hear as well as throwing the cross on the ground! I was shocked that this movie had a Dove symbol on the case! Extremely disappointed!

    The Least among You is a movie that is inspired by a true story.

    Arrested in the 1965 Watts riots, Richard Kelly must serve probation at an all-white seminary.

    I enjoyed this movie of a young man trying to rise above circumstance, dealing with family and personal issues while trying to successfully get through his post-secondary experience in the 1960's. This story is an example of persistence through times of fear was inspiring. I enjoyed this well filmed movie inspired by a true story. I have watched this movie a number of times since receiving and it still doesn't feel too predictable. The Least Among You is filled with interesting characters that causes one to evaluate and understand how our society has changed.

    I don't usually post reviews about movies, but when I noticed that publisher Thomas Nelson had DVD copies of The Least Among You for review, I decided to see what I thought about it. The story is about a young black man, Richard Kelly, who was falsely arrested in 1965 during the Watts riots. His probation is to attend an all-white seminary school.

    While attending the school as the only, and first, black man on campus, Kelly faces all the obstacles you can imagine for a man in that situation including prejudice, misunderstanding, and all out racism. As Kelly's confidence grows he begins to fight for change within the school, but eventually realizes the school leaders' motives to let him into the school are not entirely pure. Ultimately his situation inspires as much change in himself as in the students.

    The best part of this movie is that it is a true story. I had never heard Richard Kelly's story before and while I think the story is much bigger than can be told in 97 minutes, I was very inspired by the movie. The cast, which gives some good performances, includes Cedric Sanders as Richard Kelly, as well as headliners Louis Gosset Jr., Lauren Holly, and William Devane.

    The Least Among You has found an audience in the Christian community, but I daresay the fact that it was directed by Mark Young and produced by Julia Verdin, neither one of them strangers to mainstream media, might be why it turned out so well. Even though I am a Christian, I'd be the last person to claim that the Christian community has turned out several great movies (Yes, there have been some and there will probably be more). It's nice to see a movie that embodies Christian values that isn't trite, preachy, or overly sentimental. I really believe that Christian values can be seen in all kinds of redemptive movies that are produced in the mainstream, but that's another post.

    Bottom Line: This is a great family movie (PG-13) for people who want to take the discussion about the civil rights movement beyond the classroom and into their living room. As a mom, I appreciate the struggle that Richard Kelly went through, not only as a young black man in a white school, but in the choices he had to make about his future. His faith took him through some pretty big trials and when my children are a little bit older, I plan to have them watch The Least Among You.

    Dove Seal Of Approval? Really...?

    I normally look for the Dove Seal of approval on a movie and that usually means I can trust more. I do not expect Christian movies to have the F word in it. I did not get this movie free as many of the reveiwers did. I bought it to show our Bible Study for movie night. Thankfully we previewed it first. The story was pretty good but they did not flesh out the main character's conversion enough and as for the rest of the characters in the movie all I can is that is SOME seminary!
