Depression-era drama centers on ex-con Homer Hobbs (Tyson Beckford), who, after serving two years in jail, takes a room in a rundown boardinghouse. Times are tough for Hobbs and his roommates, but on Sundays, they get to participate in a "swanking" contest. Donning their best attire, the gentlemen fight for the title "King of the Evening"─and the chance to feel like royalty, at least for one night. With Lynn Whitfield, Bruce McGill, Glynn Turman. 99 min. Soundtrack: English.
