Strange Fruit....
19 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was sitting at home, minding my business, flipping through the channels, and this comes on HBO yesterday. I'm a Courtney Vance fan, and I thought I'd take a chance on this movie, since I'm not a war movie fan. He was fantastic. The movie was fantastic and heart-wrenching. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good drama.
