    Powerful Drama!

    Angela Bassett is one of my favorite actresses and one of the most talented today. The film was well-acted and the script very tight. There was great chemistry between Ms. Bassett and Kevin Anderson. The title of the film certainly catches your attention. I would recommend this film for those who are interested in a well-acted, powerful and thought-provoking film.

    Great movie!

    The acting was convincing, all around. The music was compelling, and the movie tackled sensitive issues which I do remember well from being stationed at a USAF base in mid-1960's Dixie.
