The Real MVP: The Wanda Durant Story (2016/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: D Telefilm: B+

Get the real story behind of NBA superstar Kevin Durant, behind every great man there said there to be a great woman ...and in this case a great mother. Wanda Durant was single mother who somehow raised two sons to become the great men they are today, but all of it wouldn't have been possible without their mother who first believed in them and push them towards their dreams in Nelson George's The Real MVP: The Wanda Durant Story (2016).

Wanda Durant was abandoned by her husband early on raising her two boys. She and the boys grew up in the worst parts of town, surrounded by drugs, crime and dealers. Wanda worked tirelessly to raise her boys, working two jobs, getting them to join school programs and after school basketball. Through the years, financial troubles, early mornings she made sure they got an education, put food on the table, clothes on their back, she showed sometimes it is a mom who is a real superstar.

This was a heart warming film, based on a true story, it is a story of how a mother's love for children can change the course of a child's life. Real life isn't like the stories or fairy tales, but Wanda's story is meant to inspire other single mothers that there is hope, hope to raise their children to become productive and respectable adults. But it first takes a parent who is willing to work and sacrifice for it. Queen Latifah produces.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix are as good as they can be for this now-older format. There are no extras.
