Pretty darn good!
8 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

90 minutes of perfection!! I watched this in my history class not too long ago (the whole class stayed in through break to see the end!!). I spent ages looking for it. It's about a black farmer who must cope with frequent racism from the locals. At the very beginning we learn of Walter's sad past. The neighbour's son, Charlie, has a bitter heart but throughout the story we see how he learns that not everything is as he is told (especially by his father, Reuben, played by Don Swayze). I absolutely recommend this classical film. Apart from an excellent cast (the cast includes Kris Kristofferson and Don Swayze, Patrick Swazyes' little bro!), it will captivate you and leave you asking for more. But have the tissues near, it's a bit of a tearjerker. :)
