Quotes

Eudora McCallister: Sometimes, it takes one person, making one move and opening people's eyes. It's hard to be that one person but when the time comes and you know it, you just say "Yes, this is it. It's me who has to do this".

Morgan Freeman was Outstanding
17 August 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Enjoyed viewing this film about an American Soldier who was being returned to his hometown a small city in Georgia. Major Kendall Laird, (John Lithgow) is escorting the remains of this soldier and he has to face the family, Luther Johnson, (Morgan Freeman) and his wife. This procedure usually takes a few days, however, Major Kendall experiences strange behavior by the men who were in combat with this Lt. Johnson, who has been awarded a medal for saving their lives. There is also another problem which involved the burial place for Lt. Johnson because of a racial problem with the town people who do not want a Black person to be buried in their cemetery. There are many twists and turns and this film reveals a very surprising story about what really happened to Lt. Johnson.
