Get on the Bus

Genre: Drama; Starring: Richard Belzer, Andre Braugher, Thomas Jefferson Byrd, Ossie Davis, Deaundre Bonds, Charles S. Dutton, Hill Harper, Bernie Mac, Wendell Pierce, Isaiah Washington; Director: Spike Lee; Runtime (in minutes): 120; MPAA Rating: R

Director and material come together with perfect ease in Spike Lee’s stirring drama about 15 men from L.A. who board a bus for last year’s Million Man March. Wise elder, young film student, former gang member-turned-Muslim, biracial cop, gay ex-lovers — these metaphorical men may be too good to be true, but unexpected goodness is exactly Lee’s point. B+
