Denzel Directs, Too: 'Antwone Fisher'

He's not just a convincing actor in the new movie Antwone Fisher. Denzel Washington also steps behind the camera for the first time as the film's director. The real Antwone Fisher helped turn his life into a film. Hear NPR's Bob Mondello, NPR's Michele Norris and Antwone Fisher.
