This movie had a great plot and great acting...especially the main character Nicole B. she will do big things in her movie career. I wish this movie would have been in many more theaters. Its a shame that a movie as great as this one is in limited theaters. Its a "MUST GO SEE!" So check it out! ;-)

Job Well Done

This movie really touched you because you knew that in some areas there were racial tensions and divide, but to see it just in your face and in the year of 2000 was definitely an eye opener. Movie was based on a true story and it took one person to just take a stand and it happened to be a young black woman. Not sure who the young lady was because I had never seen her in anything else, but she was dynamite and the rest of the cast, the acting and the dialogue were all on point. Glad that I saw a commercial advertising it because for the most part there was very little advertising for this film and then we were asked to take a survey after watching the movie, never had that done before. Maybe they were taking a census of the races because that was one of the questions on the survey and there were a number of whites in the movie with us as well.

Great acting and an incredible story that describes racial imbalance and inequality in today's world. We still have a long way to go!

A competent edition of the familiar formula: oppresed individual or group, with help from outside hero(es), stand(s) up for what's right against local bad guys and (drum roll, dramatic pause, cymbal crash) wins!!! . This movie's plot is reliably predictable and the bad guys are thoroughly 2-dimensional so you won't have to worry about missing anything when stepping out for munchies or about any lingering sympathy for the bad guys when they get their oh-so-well-deserved comeuppance. . But the Nicole Beharie is nice to look at and the world is in order by the end of the film, so you can spend a couple hours without becoming to annoyed -- or involved.
