This is one movie that I would recommend for all audiences. Not only does it have great historical value but it shows the human spirit in the finest light and yet shows the ugliness of reality during the days of segregation.There are several intriguing story lines to follow. The award worthy performances of Peter Coyote and Dermot Mulroney have been overlooked by critics. I contacted PAX TV but have been unable to get any information on whether they plan on showing this movie again. Has anyone ever seen this movie besides me? I have seen thousands of movies over the years but this one is at the top of my list! I would love to own this movie but since it was on TV on the PAX channel I cannot find it anywhere! If anyone knows where I can obtain a copy of this movie, please let me know.
