Movie Reviews

Miss Evers' Boys
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 01/06/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Faced with having their federal funding cut off entirely, the staff of a syphilis treatment center in Tuskegee, Alabama is forced to institute a government-mandated research project in which they study--without the patients' knowledge--the effects of the disease on untreated black patients. Based on the true story of the decades-long Tuskegee experiment. I must say that this was one of the best TV movies I've ever seen. Not only were there quality actors (Alfre Woodard, Laurence Fishburn, Joe Morton), but the people involved succeeded in making this an honest drama. One of the most well written movies ever and I encourage people to see it."
Shocking
E. Sexton | USA | 12/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had to buy this movie to watch it for school. I was shocked by the real-life story that this movie depicts. It's a great movie to watch, especially for those in healthcare to see how research trials with human subjects were conducted."
