Storyline

The true story of Ruby Bridges, an African-American girl who, in 1960 at age 6, helped to integrate the all-white schools of New Orleans. Although she was the only black girl to come to the school she was sent to, (and since all the white mothers pulled their children out of class, she was the only one there, period), and though she faced a crowd of angry white citizens every day, she emerged unscathed, physically or emotionally. Encouraged by her teacher, a white woman from the North named Barbara Henry, and her mother, Lucille, and with her own quiet strength, she eventually broke down a century-old barrier forever, a pivotal moment in the civil-rights movement. Written by Tommy Peter

Yawn...
30 March 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

There's probably at least a dozen movies like this one, but most are better. Ruby Bridges is a little black girl who breaks new grounds by attending an all-white school in New Orleans in 1960. The movie is not very inspiring and the acting is not very good. Skip this one.

6 out of 10.
