Good Movie if you like the time when race relations were really tense. Great Cast too.

I had attempted to read the book, but was unable to read it without getting interrupted, so I decided to try the DVD. I was thoroughly engrossed in the story, and was completely impressed with the movie! The characters and actresses who played them were so believable, and I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a great character study.

This movie is beautiful! Latifah is wonderful as the strong and wise August. The acting is consistently good. I read the book first, and this is one movie based on a book that doesn't disappoint. Everyone should see this movie. My teenage son and I enjoyed it together.

This one pulls at your heart strings
Leslie Bethany | D'iberville, MS | 01/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best movie I have seen in a long time. I think I had tears in my eyes through 75% of the movie. This is Dakota Fanning's best performance. Jennifer Hudson was spectacular. Queen Latifah delivered like never before. Everyone was amazing in this film. Don't waste your time renting this one because it's one to own. You really connect with the characters and the issues at hand. This is a must see movie."
Best movie of 2008!!

"I thought this was the best movie of 2008! It was SO GOOD! Granted I had some movies that I went to and watched over and over again, this one I only watched once but once I watched it I knew it would be a timeless classic. Don't rent this movie! Just buy it! It's SO GOOD!"

"Excellent movie. Almost perfect version of the book. I was expecting a PG though but still it's a great movie. For me one of the best movies of 2008."
