The greatest South African literature ever?
Athol Fugard's drama brought to life on TV. Zakes Mokae, who co-starred in the Yale Reparatory Theatre production of this play with Danny Glover, works alongside future star Matthew Broderick. The script itself is outstanding, uncovering the inherent racism in even the best of friends, and how it can momentarily tear apart a friendship. This adaptation is done very well; the movie was low-budget for a reason: only three parts were cast in the original script to begin with, and only one set was necessary!
