The centerpiece of Lackawanna Blues is the character Rachel "Nanny"
Crosby, who runs a boardinghouse and provides unflagging support to a
young boy, Ruben, the narrator of the film. Based upon the experiences
of writer-actor Ruben Santiago-Hudson, the film lovingly recreates the
upstate New York boardinghouse and evokes the cultural climate of a
world in transition in the 1960s.
The first half of the film is virtually non-stop music. The second half
addresses more completely the various characters in the boardinghouse.
Nanny's ability "to take fragments and make them whole" affects
everyone within her sphere. An especially vivid scene is when she
confronts an abusive husband, telling him firmly, "If you ever touch
that child again, we're going to dance!" As delivered by actress S.
Epatha Merkerson, that line is so steely and filled with such resolve
that the husband with the hair-trigger temper is frozen in his tracks.
From start to finish, Merkerson delivers a commanding presence Her
character binds together the disparate lives of the borders in her
home. This was a touching, heartfelt film with a wonderful cast. As
played by Merkerson, the character of Nanny simply radiates love. This
is a film experience that I will remember for a long time to come.
