  • Macky Alston has made a smart film, HARD ROAD HOME, about a tough subject: ex-convicts. While it’s often the subject of entertainment–subplots of cop shows and law and order court dramas–we don’t frequently see the lives of ex-cons in a non-fictionalized, non-sensational way.

  • HARD ROAD HOME doesn’t overstate any angle on the problem, neither the idealism nor the cynicism. Instead, it tells stories, observing and respecting those who know.
