A True Hero's Story
9 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
