In June 1966, Rubin Hurricane Carter was a strong contender fo rthe
middleweight boxing title. When three people were murdered in a New Jersey
bar, Carter's dreams were destroyed. Driving home from a nearby club, Carter
was wrongly arrested and sentenced to serve three life terms in prison.
Several years later, Carter's published memoir inspired a Brookly teenager
and three Canadian activists who believed in the truth to join forces with
Carter to prove his innocence. Their extraordinary efforts of commitment and
love ultimately secure his release.
Canadian Connection: Filmed in Toronto, Ontario.
I think the factual and fictional representations of the movie portray realities that concern black history in America. Any other inmate of different nationalities can identify with the loneliness, inner dialogs, psychological trauma feelinga, and emotions that a prisoner may feel. The movie makes of wonder about "that justice for all" and about the visits that we should pay to prisoners.
