I'm not sure what I was expecting from this movie, but it was absolutely amazing. I'm so happy I supported it by seeing it in the theaters. I think this is one of those movies everyone should watch. It's so surreal to think this time period really wasn't that long ago and the world was just changing (for the better) so fast. It keeps me hope.

My emotions were absolutely all over the place! I wept several times and as I walked out of the theatre I had to use great control not to weep. A wonderful film that touched on many difficult times in American history. Superb acting, although I must admit that Oprah was Oprah.

I liked the movie. Words that come to mind are: compelling, powerful and emotional docudrama that I could relate to. I have not always been a Forest Whitaker fan, but he was outstanding in this movie.

Maybe if you're in your 60's and have lived through most of it, It held no surprisesl
All presidents showed absolutely no resemblance to actors and very few special tidbits about the presidents.

This movie was absolutely amazing! It is mainly for those with a higher interest in history and our presidents. It is a very descriptive movie and gives a huge real life example of the way of thought amongst black men and women. Along with white men and women. Those that wish the blacks to be oppressed as apposed to those that do not. And those that are in mutual standings with both sides.
