We gave it a C-

For his Hustle & Flow follow-up, writer-director Craig Brewer tells the story of a broken bluesman (Samuel L. Jackson) who reforms a promiscuous girl (Christina Ricci) through unorthodox methods. Like chaining her up. Tales of redemption don’t excite you? Well, Moan also has a blistering blues soundtrack. (Feb. 23)
