30 October 1999 | hanoirocks
A forbidden love story in a time when racial tensions abound
Strong screenplay that did not require graphic sexual content to convey its message. A white woman has an affair with a black man and she initially tries to fight it....but its no use. One of the best films I have ever seen for honesty in portraying human sexuality but not too blatantly. Remember the little girl in Schindler's List that had the colored coat? Be on the lookout for the chalk scribbles on the sidewalk that conjure up a message that is equally as strong.
