Will be a Classic

Sara Gilbert proves what a talented actress she is in this film, even at only 15 she plays an amazing part.

The film is set in 1950's Linlow, Georgia and basically follows Sudie who meets a blackman, Simpson. She starts off being afraid thinking he'll eat her, but the towns prejudices soon leaves Sudie and they become the best of friends.

A lot more happens during the film, but I cant give too much away.

Considering it was made for TV, this is a film with many elements, including comedy and a lot of emotion.

I dont normally get emotional during a film, but Sara Gilbert's performance was so brilliant.
