Movie Reviews

Perhaps, if this one had been shown on HBO...
Reginald D. Garrard | Camilla, GA USA | 01/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...or any other "prestigious" network, it might have attained the recognition it deserves. Like the other reviewer, I can only praise the excellent script and the fine performances from Sizemore, Jenkins, Rhames, and Fiore. Closeups of Sizemore's agonized face bring this viewer almost to tears. Jenkin's intensity, seen in both the frequent flashbacks and present-time scenes, is awesome. Rhames provides the "conscience" that brings Sizemore to the realization that he must reveal his father's past. And Fiore is quite good as the FBI agent, determined to right the wrong of the death of the four little black girls, so long ago in Montgomery.Also, in lesser yet pivotal roles, are Lachlan Murdock as young "Tom" and Brenda Bazinet as his cancer-stricken mother. The two actors bring conviction to their roles as persons caught up in an abusive home and the turbulent times of the Civil Rights Movement. It is hard to imagine that this fine film didn't sweep the Emmy Awards of 2003 for its teleplay or the acting."
