It was a God-send to hear about this movie just a few days ago. The great amount of accurate historical facts, moral truths, and heart this movie provides is unlike any other movie I have ever seen. The narrator showed such clear sincerity and fairness as he exposed the issues that most Americans are ignorant about. Don't get turned off by the listing of Glenn Beck as one of the main characters - his time in the movie is very, very short. (I agree with Beck, but is not one of my favorites.) It was awesome to hear from such articulate and well-informed young men. I can't wait to share this movie with my young adult children and all other family members.

This was a very well done movie. There was no time during the movie that I lost interest. I would love to know that every single American has seen this movie. The intensity and truth were gripping and I learned so much that I did not know. Knowledge is power! I am so glad I had the opportunity to see this terrific movie.

This is a movie that every American should see. It is definitely worth the the price of the ticket as well as the time it takes to see this movie. I certainly hope it starts to appear in other theaters, soon. S L

This documentary is well conceived, and very well executed. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, because it speaks to the very touchy subject of racism with fortitude, intellectual honesty and even-handedness. I appreciate the fact that those with different viewpoints are allowed, even encouraged, to speak their minds openly and without being harshly judged. This film boldly assesses racism from angles that I have never seen addressed publicly. Furthermore, it removes the mask from various expressions of racism, but does not demonize anyone. Rather it humanizes everyone, so that blind hatred or rejection becomes less palatable, and every opinion is given fair consideration. I was inspired by the story of the main character, and found myself identifying closely with his experience of exclusion resulting in liberation. All Americans would find themselves challenged by this film to grow in understanding of others, regardless of color or culture. I recommend it for everyone 12 and older.
