As an uncle and niece, Curtis (Cube) and Jasmine (Palmer) are both adrift and alone. When Curtis discovers Jasmine’s hidden talent, a surprising friendship develops as they breathe life into each other and realize they have potential beyond what others see in them.
The script, by Nick Santora, known for his grittier work on “Prison Break,” is predictably by-the-numbers, but undeniably sincere, endearing and lovely. You may see the plot twists coming a mile away, but that doesn’t mean you won’t cheer, laugh, weep and applaud them.
The Longshots is currently in theaters.
