Goofs

The international truck parked outside the barbershop 20 minutes into the film has rectangular headlights. Round headlights were required in the United States until 1975. The truck appears to be a late 90's or early 2000's model truck. The trailer is also advanced for the era. See more »

I was sure it was going to be just another civil rights movie, but I was mistaken
1 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When this movie was suggested to me because of my never ending pursuit of cultural studies, supported by my degree in African and Latino Studies, I was quite sure that this would be one of those Hallmark specials that only moved the souls of individuals who have some prior knowledge. I must say though that I was mistaken and found myself clicks away from wanting to contact the man who wrote the book that this movie is based on. You can be a novice to the civil rights movement and still be able to grab the concepts and notions being presented to the viewer. I felt moved to the point of as the verdict in the case was about to be read aloud in the courtroom, I almost stopped the movie because I didn't want to face the verdict. This movie kept me brewing, kept that flame I have lit fanned, and made me thankful for our triumphs but still yearn for the work that still needs to be done. It is a jarring concept that this movie is set in our society a mere 50 years ago.
