Vicellous Reon Shannon is going to be a young actor to watch. He was impressive in Norman Jewison's "The Hurricane" and here, he provides the centerpiece for a powerful chronicling of the civil rights movement. This film is an impressive re-telling of how the non-violent emphasis within that movement led to its eventual success. Carole King's "Song of Freedom" is a great anthem for the film, and the entire effort is understated to a degree that would benefit atrocious films like "Mississippi Burning." The father-son relationship between Shannon and Danny Glover is a great sub-plot which underscores the generational differences which always threaten to separate us and yet can ultimately bind us together. Great film all around.
