Naomi and Octavia merit Oscar nominations and great performances by newcomer Kelvin Johnson and Tim Roth. Very complex multi-layered drama crossing family, racial and gender stereotyping as well as a layer of teacher-student relationship set in challenging timeframe of adolescence. Great script and acting.
