Reviews
While the title of her documentary suggests a lurid true crime story, what we get instead is the eye-opening account of how one brave black man's refusal to accept guilt where there was none...made its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
The film sharply illustrates the pervasive character of systemic racism that allows one person to use his position in society to tangle another in a web that can trap him for a lifetime.
