You'll stay here tonight but from now on, you will travel *only* by day.

There are safe houses here, here and here. Make sure you reach them by sundown. When you get to Newcastle, find the Quaker church first thing, and the Minister there will help you the rest of the way.
Why the Quakers?
Down South, Mr. Mink, belief in Jesus is no sure sign of goodness; except among the foot-washers.

Talk about an attention grabber! It touches your every sense, first making you angry - near tears, then it leaves the viewer feeling, well, victorious at the end. The writer and producers deserve an applause for a job well done. This movie kept my entire family (parents and kids) in silence from beginning to end so it's a great one for family night. And when it did end, we were all longing for more. Lou G. brings life and truth to James Mink. He should be proud. Every actor was exceptional and deserves an award. I can only pray this movie is produced on DVD soon so I can proudly add to my collection. I rated this movie '9' only because I wish it was longer.
