Title: Class of '61 (1993)
Post by: titoli on August 18, 2011, 03:44:41 PM
This looks like a pilot for a tv mini-series never completed, produced by Spielberg and with an interesting cast. Unfortunately it is a bit too melodramatic and it takes the usual stance too many movies on Civil Wars lately take: to concentrate on the drama of fighting brothers and forgetting about the reasons for fighting: which is not fair toward who died for a just cause. The plight of black people in the South is painted as idillyac: the exception is elevated to rule while the rule is just hinted at. 6\10
