Ghosts of Mississippi
Impressive drama about the assassination of 1960’s civil rights leader Medger Evers, which was fought in courts for 30 years until it was re-opened in the 1990’s with Mississippi D.A. Bobby DeLaughter (Baldwin) leading the charge to bring assassin Byron De Lay Beckwith (Woods, in a juicy Oscar nominated role) to justice. Goldberg is especially standout as Ever’s widow who fought for the truth for over 30 years. Rob Reiner’s film may run a little long for some, but the excellent cast and realistic story will keep you glued until the end.
Glossy but highly effective thriller based on the true story of an attempt to bring a racially motivated killer to trial. The film suffers from a certain liberal obviousness: brave, charming white man (who loves his kids) and dignified black widow fight side by side for justice; but it’s always compelling, and pertinent too. No magic, then, but a strong story: one of director Rob Reiner’s better efforts.
