Sleep with Anger

Harry Mention (Danny Glover), a mysterious stranger from the Deep South, stirs up the conflicting values and divided loyalties of three generations of a contemporary black South Central Los Angeles family. Like the family it portrays, To Sleep with Anger is cut from a colorful cloth, intricately woven with multiple layers of truth and dishonesty, love and mistrust, folklore and history, and drama and humor.
