Winger proved the rumors to be wrong as, according to Eszterhas, she was the sweetest person. Tom Berenger was so intimidated by her that she had to make coffee for him and kid with him to put him on ease, and she spent one entire night playing poker with the crew to ease them.

I found this movie to be effective as both fiction and non-fiction. Debra Winger and Tom Berenger both give first rate performances. This movie reveals how racism is passed down from one generation to the next. The passage, "the sins of the father are visited on the son" seem particularly relevant. I was surprised that it did not receive a higher user rating. Eventhough I saw it years ago, it remains in my memory as a very powerful and important movie.
