Excellent!!
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been unable to find this movie on tape, however, it is truly a unique work. It is one of the most touching movies I have ever watched and really does having you crying many a time. It truly shows how bigotry, prejudice, and hate have no place in our society. I think this movie is absolutely wonderful and Ms. Plowright, as always, delivers an excellent performance. For someone that enjoys a good show of cultural relationships, especially in the Deep south during times of racial in balance this movie is an excellent portrayal of such relationships. It really does display some of the best and the worst characteristics that human nature has to offer.
