An aspiring black actor who takes on his biggest acting challenge when he stumbles upon a mob boss living under an assumed name. In order to avoid becoming the victim of a contract hit that will guarantee his silence, he adopts a foolproof disguise, turning himself into an Italian enforcer and infiltrating the mob. Unfortunately, at the same time, he finally gets his first big break - playing Othello. Delivered sealed in case with artwork as shown on our website.

Starring:  Lenny Henry, Frank Langella, Charles Lane

Viewer Review:  "Watching "True Identity," I was somehow reminded of an old "Saturday Night Live" Eddie Murphy skit where he disguised himself as a white man, then walked around New York City in makeup, realizing that when no black people are around, white people like to get funky. It's very entertaining, many of funny scenes. Henry is able to show off how good he is at comedy while we are entertained. And for the record, his "white man makeup" is much more convincing than Murphy's. To sum up, great cast, and good script - definitely worth seeing."
