it is a quality movie
31 January 2004 | by JERGIROCCOSee all my reviews

It is very good motion picture about the subject of race relations and bigotry. Everyone should see this movie as it was very well produced and the acting was excellent It is too bad John Drew Barrymore did not stay in movies and television as he was a very good actor.
