Quotes

Simpson: Do you have any idea what'll happen if they catch a little white girl with a colored man?
Sudie Harrigan: Wouldn't nobody hurt you, I wouldn't let 'em. And ain't nothing gonna happen to me, 'cept I'd get a whippin'. Whippin' ain't nothing, I get those all the time.
Simpson: Miss Sudie, you can't come back here no more!

This was a captivating movie
4 March 2004 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Roseanne's Sara Gilbert caught my attention while looking through the many stations after a recent insomnia session. I wasn't expecting much at first but this movie was both entertaining, realistic, and it captivated the persona of prejudice. It really brought a new light on how naive people were due to what they have been told. Sara Gilbert's performance is amazing as well as the interaction between her new found friend Simpson whom not only has to face prejudice but also has had a very hard life beyond that. I am not one to say I enjoy many TV movies but this one was of a lack of a better word great. I highly recommend it to anyone whom enjoys a good drama movie. Also if you enjoyed this I recommend seeing another movie of similiar proportions called Wildflower directed by Diane Keaton. It currently can be seen on Lifetime off and on.
