Sudie and Simpson (1990 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
The film is set in 1950's Linlow, Georgia and basically follows Sudie who meets a blackman, Simpson. She starts off being afraid thinking he'll eat her, but the towns prejudices soon leaves Sudie and they become the best of friends.
A lot more happens during the film, but I cant give too much away.
Considering it was made for TV, this is a film with many elements, including comedy and a lot of emotion.
I dont normally get emotional during a film, but Sara Gilbert's performance was so brilliant.
Recently, I saw Mr. Gossett in ROOTS and he brought the same quality to that role as "Fidler." Sara Gilbert has always impressed me as a formidable actress. She needs to be given more dramatic roles and move in the direction of the great actresses like Geraldine Page. This role with Gossett was a complete opposite of what she was doing on ROSEANNE.
