Good Documentary But More Details Are Needed
One Night in March (2013)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Good documentary taking a look at the 1963 Mississippi State basketball team who defied certain members of their school and state by deciding to take the offer to play in the NCAA Tournament. In previous years, when Mississippi State were invited, they turned down the opportunity because the school didn't want their white players going up against teams with blacks. ONE NIGHT IN MARCH tells a pretty important story but if you're expecting the same level or quality of ESPN's 30 for 30 series then you're going to be disappointed. I'm not sure if there's a longer version out there but the one I watched ran under 30-minutes and this just wasn't enough time to give us more details, which were needed. The film pretty much gives you all the basic facts about what happened from the team winning the invite to sneaking out of the state and then their game against Loyala. While watching the film its hard to imagine that these events took place such a short time ago. It's hard to believe that teams were kept out of the tournament because of certain beliefs that they shouldn't play against colored teams. The film does a good job at telling us about what happened but there's no question that more details were needed.
