RIVETING!!! Grab your friends and Go! The story is compelling, the acting superb! There isn't a wasted moment. True stories of courage cannot be told too often, and this one is fresh and unexpected. Saw this with my husband and mother. They also loved it. I plan to take my middle school kids. I only heard of this by chance skimming the through the New York Times review and a heard a brief review on NPR, otherwise I would never have known.

I found this movie to be very moving and emotional. "This is a must see"!!! Although, the movie was not advertised more, the movie is worth seeing. The young lady in the movie did an excellent performance. Hope to see more of her. Please go check it out. The movie puts out a strong message that is all around the world today and is still going.

The acting by all in this movie was superb! And very well written. It definitely let's one
who is not aware realize that racism and corruption is still very much alive in the united states. Adults and teenagers should view this movie.

true stories need to be told... and need to be told well.
in addition, the fact that this is recent truth just makes it that much harder to believe...
and that much more necessary to be witnessed.
don't miss out.
