    A film full of great performances and surprisingly refreshing drama. Highly recommended. It shone a light on events that need more recognition. 5 years 3 months ago

    The "Academy" should be ashamed that they didn't give this film the recognition it deserves. A must see film. As a 28 year old Southern, white male that was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL, I was truly moved by this film. It angered me, saddened me, embarrassed me for those that came before me, but, ultimately, inspired me beyond measure. 4 years 9 months ago
