Quotes

Himself - Interview: It is difficult, all these years afterward, to understand and appreciate the atmosphere of fear that reigned throughout the South when the Civil Rights Movement was in full flowering. I reported in the South, and I reported in Vietnam, and I was twice as scared covering the South as I was covering Vietnam.

Brings to life "the tangled discords of our nation" at that time.
20 February 2006 | by marylilleboeSee 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.
