  • 5 stars I rated this movie a 5, because I live in a retarded area of the country where our uneducated populace prefers Trump and fantasy to books by great homosexual writers, even when there is no depiction of such in this movie. Maybe enough fives will make the movie chains cobsider bring it to my retarded area, Stuart, FL, PSL, included consider showing it. Oh silly me, people here never heard of James Baldwin, much less read his books.
  • The Only Best Picture Oscar that was not even nominated.
  • 5 stars This is a beautiful movie, though it is extremely painful. However, that pain is a true reflection of America's dreadful treatment of people of color. This is touching and real and a piece of art. All white folks in America (I am one of them) should see this beautiful film.
  • 5 stars Perhaps the most devastatingly true movie I have ever seen. As a white woman who worked as a teacher and then a community counselor in an impoverished black and Mexican community in the 1960s in California's Central Valley, I was in and out of the homes of the children's families, knew the parents well, listened to their stories. The film tells it all, with wonderful actors, and the slow pace adds to the anguish and truth. And, as others have remarked, it still goes on. How could anyone call this beautifully filmed and acted tragedy bigoted? Among other things, it is great art.
  • 1 stars Slow moving, acting was terrible other than Regina King, ended up walking out.
  • 1 stars Lousy. No cohesiveness, drawn out scenes, bigoted. Sorry I spent my money to see this.
  • 1 stars Didn't care for the movie, but I love Regina King - even though she was so so much better in Congeniality 2 with Sandra Bullock. Her performance in that movie was Fantastic.
  • 2 stars It was very slow. The story was good, but it wasn't done very well. The story was choppy. The should have shown things better.
  • 3 stars I will watch this movie again when it comes out on video,because I may have missed something . I can't agree with all the great reviews . To me it was long and boring. I was fighting to stay awake and wishing for the end. A great story ,and some great acting so I will reserve final judgement until I view it again .
  • 1 stars Too slow just the message is good but delivery is very bad and nothing special about this movie.
