And how loss, pain and suffering would eventually lead him to renounce what he once stood for. Written by

Angelina Jolie's breakout performance - a star of the future.
She steals every scene she is in and oozes sensuality all over the screen. Mark my words - she will be a major star and actress of the next decade. He also gives a powerhouse performance of a controversial historical figure. John Frankenheimer directs the movie with a knowing and sure hand. Fascinating and informative movie of a pivotal moment in America's history and the relation of the races.
