Should be required viewing.....
25 March 1999 | by (Midland, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie should be required viewing for every student in America. It tells the true story of the murder of 4 students at Kent State University by National Guardsmen. This is America's Tienamin Square.

Any student of American history who is not aware of this dark point in history would do well to watch carefully and understand how this situation got out of hand....

While the acting is not necessarily Oscar material, the movie's appeal is for it's historical value......
