sounder the movie is an all time great , top ten any list
this is a wonderful movie that portrays the racial divide in the south with honest and poignant scenes. the minorities in the movie are treated as second class citizens but the movies message is heartfelt. Young Kevin Hooks is well cast (he is now a director and also was a cast member on "the white shadow") and Paul Windfield and Cicely Tyson have such on screen chemistry it is rapture. a must see film that if it does not touch your heart you do not have one. absolutely a film white racist(young) should see to maybe change their mind about black folk and minorities in general . Sounder is the "old yeller" of its time and deserves a DVD release .
