Poster for Barbecue
By  Robert O’Hara • Directed by Steve Broadnax
This American domestic comedy forces uneasy thoughts about the facile presumptions we make about poverty, race, and social class, as applied to dysfunctional families. In the confines of the theatre, it seems safe enough to howl at the antics of poor white trailer-trash siblings staging an intervention for the family hellion. But what if a poor black trailer-trash brood organized the same intervention for one of their own? Anyone have a problem with that?
