Jake Vig (Burns) is a consummate grifter about to pull his biggest con yet, one set to avenge his friend's murder. But his last scam backfired, leaving him indebted to a mob boss (Hoffman) and his enforcer.
The integration of Central High School in Little Rock was a nightmare for the brave students who broke the color barrier.
In this earnest (no pun intended) film, young people can get a sense of the courage of teenagers in extraordinary circumstances. The performances are first rate and even young viewers will understand the story.
