Quotes

Narrator: Shortly after her killing, well over a thousand pages of FBI reports were written up about her - unusual for the victim of a crime. Her file was three times larger than that of the Ku Klux Klan at the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

Brings to life "the tangled discords of our nation" at that time.
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A complicated story that touches us in so many different ways. Sad and yet inspiring, it demonstrates the spirit of the true American patriots. In addition, it is the story of a woman who actions would not stand out today but were uncommon and unacceptable in her time. You also have a deeply personal perspective from Viola's children, who courageously expose themselves as they tell their story. They lost their Mother, say her character assassinated, uncovered the abuse of J. Edgar Hoover and sued the FBI, but moreover sought to be reunited with the Mother who raised them. A heartbreaking story of the cost of standing up against injustice.The film holds your attention and leaves you stunned.
