A child empowering film that goes beyond the expected!
15 March 1999 | by BigGuy-2See all my reviews

This is a wonderfully cast and acted, beautifully shot film. The characters are real, their life is real, their hearts and souls are true to their character. This is the first film I've ever seen that uses an historic example of The Montgomery Bus Boycott and Martin Luther King's protest as a contemporary theme and still remains "color blind." How great it is that children use non-violent protest to get their point across without the issue every boiling down to race even when the person they are defending is black.
