Special Post!

Info about movie and plot found on en.wikipedia.org

Hello fellow followers! This is Asher with a special post. Last Friday, I saw a great Jamaican  movie called The Harder They Come. This film starred Jimmy Cliff, one of the first great Reggae artists. The movie helped bring Reggae to audiences worldwide. Cliff plays a poor Jamaican man named Ivanhoe Martin who is searching for a job. Martin has a love for music, and tries to land a record deal with the main producer in Kingston. As the film progresses, we see Ivanhoe’s journey into music, and the barriers along the way. Cliff unfortunately ends up with the wrong crowd, and this leaves him to a life of crime and corruption. The movie is well known for its fantastic soundtrack and immense success in Jamaica. The story was loosely based on a famous Jamaican criminal of the same name. I highly recommend this film to anybody who loves music, foreign films, and crime stories. I will be posting the main theme song at the bottom of the post. I would also love to hear what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
