American Son ★★

This is basically a teleplay of a well-acted, but flawed piece by Christopher Demos-Brown. American Son handles its heavy social themes with simplistic and stereotypical dialogue which then gives the actors the full burden of making it work. The great Kerry Washington is flattened with her agonizing scowl expression, while Steven Pasquale makes great impression but still all characters are paper-thin with no depth or understanding.
