What an eye opener
2 April 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was rather simplistic and not completely accurate with the real events that occurred. However, the film was in some aspects a masterpiece. There was a lot of symbolism in the movie. The film was low budget and I found a bad technical flaw (TV sets need an antenna for a clear picture!). However most of the acting was excellent and the story was without parallel.

There is a brilliant documentary which I would say is superior to this film called The Loving Story. It is highly recommended to watch before seeing this film so some facts can be established first.

What stood out in the film was that racism was systemic in the so-called United States, where the deep south governments in the 60's were clearly the enemy of liberty and freedom. The film should have made a special mention to the good old white boy state of Alabama which thumbed its nose at the Supreme Court by refusing to the miscegenation laws until as late as 2000, when the vote to allow interracial marriage was barely passed.

I recommend this film to anyone who believes in freedom, democracy and justice. This obviously excludes members of the KKK who would probably burn it.
