John Singleton's "Four Brothers"

Download Audio
photoJohn Singleton is riding high in Hollywood. He produced and bankrolled the independent hip-hop-toned film "Hustle & Flow" that's won raves at Sundance and beyond this summer. He's also directed the lapel-grabbing new film that opens in theaters today, "Four Brothers," starring Mark Wahlberg, R&B singer Tyrese and OutKast superstar Andre 3000.

It's the story of four foster brothers --two black, two white — who come home to Detroit seeking vengeance and then justice for the murdered woman who adopted them. It is a violent high action film that ends up also reaching for a high message of justice, community, and even love.
