Very Interesting
30 December 1999 | by (Anderson SC USA) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of this movie until I saw it this afternoon. I was channel surfing and managed to luck up on it when it was starting. I watched five minutes and was hooked until the end of the closing credits. I thought the movie was really good, and it explored a racial tension line that I had never thought to explore before. It was an interesting and tastefully done. I liked it
