Surprsingly Good!

Since the reviews were so mixed, I wasn't sure how this one was going to turn out. It was surprisingly good. I had no idea of the high amount of deportees to Jamaica. This film dealt with the lives of 3 people who were deported back to Jamaica because of crimes (all drug related). Even though they'd made stupid decisions that prompted their deportation, I really felt bad for them. Seeing their stories and how they got caught up shows that bad things can happen to good people. This movie also shows the seedy side of Jamaica -- the side tourists don't see. What I liked is that some people had a happy ending, and some didn't. The film was very realistic. It also reinforced another belief I have: no matter what problems we have in America, I sure as hell wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Very realistic film with one minor flaw
Verified purchase
Most of these people did not have true Jamaican accents and the island didn't appear to be Jamaica. It didn't look like Jamaica but the storyline was real and authentic all the same. The actors sound like they were from some other island perhaps Trinidad - but besides that minor flaw, the movie was good. Had the accents been accurate and more screen time of the real Jamaica - it would have been a 5 rating. Why are Jamaicans always angry and kill each other for nothing?

Painfull to Watch
Verified purchase
This was a difficult movie for me to watch . . . maybe too much realism . . . definitely a lot of sadness. When my husband and I passed through Kingston on our way to our all-inclusive vacation club resort, what was portrayed in the movie was EXACTLY what we saw . . . poverty . . . crime . . . drugs . . . violence . . . and you name it! If that's Home Again, then I would NEVER want to go home . . . talk about a good place to be FROM! Home Again is worth watching but not for the faint-of-heart.

This movie was so amazing to see how things work in another part of the world in kingston ja. These people are already poor and the wars they have there are crazy about little things which they will take your life so quickly for...tatyana ali played a really great part in this movie this girl was really strong due to all she had been threw losing her kids, rape, lied on and people refusing to hire her! The drug game is live or dead ! Good movie

Not a movie for family night
Verified purchase
It had some nice actors in it, but it made us emotional. There were a few scenes that were not what we respected to see. Definitely didn't like the ending.

The movie had so many beautiful actors that delivered complex performances that were believable that I was deeply satisfied when the movie was over.

Excellent.
Verified purchase
This was a great movie that brings awareness to a sad issue. The people of other countries should not shun those who are sent back in the ways depicted within this movie. Such a shame. Great plot, very well developed and interwoven. Worth the watch.
