Movie Reviews

Legacy is a winner!
Andrea Moore | 12/29/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Legacy is a sure winner. This documentary covers the lives of three generations of women as they struggle through life. These women live in poverty and desperation, but still manage to love eachother and work as a family unit. The murder of a close family member ends up providing the inspiration for finally securing better lives for themselves."
A must see-phenomenal!

""Legacy" should be broadcast on national televison. . .There are so many damaging ideas of what happens in the urban ghettoes of our nation. . .I lived in the city of Chicago for sixteen years, and for almost a decade defended convicted felons in the appeals of their convictions. . .Today I teach high school in the Twin Cities (MN) and on a daily basis instruct young people who have fled the mean streets of Chicago's West Side--one of the only places in America that harbors a significant number of families who are subject to multi-generational public assistance dependency (see William Julius Wilson's book: "When Work Disappears"); yet, in this beautiful documentary the strength of a family--all women--shone through this tragedy. . .I show this to my students every year, not your typical Minnesotans--95% non-white, 60% English as a second language, 90% free and reduced lunch, and it serves as an inspiration for them. . ."Legacy" should be seen by all Americans. . ."
