”When you go home for the holidays, it’s almost like you’re getting a report card on your life,” says writer-director Preston A. Whitmore II. Which might be bad for Quentin (Idris Elba), a struggling musician returning to the nest for the first time in four years. He finds a stranger (Delroy Lindo) living with his divorced mother (Loretta Devine), the matriarch of a complicated family rife with sibling rivalry. Whitmore drew upon his own upbringing for the story. ”My family hasn’t seen it yet, so I am a little nervous,” he says. Let’s see if he’s invited home this Christmas.
