Best Movie With Cleveland Ties 

Antwone Fisher

The tale of a local kid made good, Antwone Fisher reminded audiences that Halle Berry isn't Cleveland's only connection to Hollywood. The movie tells the real-life story of Fisher, who survived a youth riddled with abuse, violence, and crime to become a heralded memoirist and, with this script, an equally heralded screenwriter. Thanks to newcomer Derek Luke's turn as Fisher, first-time director Denzel Washington -- who also plays the psychiatrist who helps Fisher mend -- delivers a film that we guarantee will stand the test of time better than anything Halle's done, or will do.
