Good Movie
20 February 2018 | by ladytiffknee-65172See all my reviews

I thought this was a good movie and I disagree with a previous review that the acting was sub par. It was good acting. And I also disagree that the real Blacks involved in the school incident were not innocent at all. Even in the review you can see the bias. Which is ridiculous.

Anyhow, it's not a movie you'd want to see at the movies, per say. More like a cable movie. But it does accurately depict blatant racism, reaction to that racism and police, school and authoritative bias towards minorities.

It seemed a little incomplete towards the end. The villain was not dealt with. But maybe that's the narrative: that racists, especially ones of wealth and privilege, often get away with their misdeeds. I also would have liked to have know how it turned out for the young couple. I'd say, it's fine to watch at home. I did not feel like I wasted my time.
