“Omari Hardwick is in prison on a ten-year sentence. Wife Emayatzy Corinealdi tells him heu0026#39;s going to behave, and get out in five years. He reluctantly agrees. Yet while heu0026#39;s in prison, sheu0026#39;s in a prison of her own outside, stuck with trying to pay the bills for lawyers, fighting with her mother, riding the late-night bus from work to home. It comes to a head at his parole hearing, where she hears details of some of the things he has been doing, and is devastated.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere have been a lot of movies about men (and women) in prison, but few, if any about what the writer-director of this movie, Ava DuVernay, calls the u0026quot;invisible prisoners.u0026quot; Miss Corinealdi is excellent in a fully written role, stuck, conflicted, and fumbling. With Lorraine Toussaint and David Oyelowo”
