It will make you laugh and make you cry
Very few movies today stick with you long after you've seen the film. This is one such movie. Kevin Willmott has brilliantly recreated a unique time and place in beautiful black and white film---Junction City, Kansas in the 1960's. Ninth Street in Junction City, Kansas had a notorious strip of black-owned businesses known as the Harlem of Kansas. G.I.'s at nearby Fort Riley flocked to Ninth Street for a good time---and talked about it as they travelled the world serving their country. But this movie isn't just about one Kansas town---it's about a whole host of hot button issues---the military industrial complex, the Vietnam War, Catholicism, evangelical Christianity, class warfare, and most of all---race issues. The movie is packed with symbolism and meaning, and those who "get it" will marvel at this film and won't soon forget about it.
