Harlem Aria is not a new film. When it was first released, it won every audience award in the country where it was shown. For some reason I'll never understand, it was not released widely at that time. It's a wonderful story with terrific actors and a heartwarming ending. It's also fun to see, and the music is marvelous. The main character is a young black man who has a special gift -- he is able to sing operatic arias with a beautiful voice although he is unable to take care of himself fully. He resents his aunt's guardianship enough to run away to Washington Square Park in NYC in a tuxedo his neighborhood drug pusher gave him. The rest of the movie is about how his talent is received and exploited by a couple of street performers. It's great.
