Movie Reviews


4 stars

Greatly emphasizes the era of segregation, and the heartlessness of the Anglos. Rose Lee’s love for her family and community is an element that will definitely touch your heart. An absolute must see!

The Wall Street Journal


5 stars

One of the most tender stories that gives a historically accurate mental picture as to what is happening. A very heartfelt telling.
