Powerful and thought provoking
9 October 2018 | by kirklaird948See all my reviews

I watched this film at a Cineworld secret Unlimited screening on 8 October. I would like to say it was superb. But bearing in mind the subject matter, though it is an excellently made film, Powerful is more apt.

Without giving too much away, it highlights the divide and different attitudes from both sides of American colour.

I didn't know what to expect with this film, not even knowing the title. Well worth the time investment seeing it.
