Anna's moment to shine bright
Written by and starring Anna Deavere Smith, who wrote also wrote and starred in the Off Broadway New York Play, which the movie is adapted from. Anna is usually a supporting actor on film but a very accomplished actress on stage.
Although the focus is about the 17 presentations discussing racism, inequality, the justice system, the prison system, and a whole lot more I really felt it was more about Anna getting the chance to show her amazing range and it begs the question why hasn't she had the chance for a lead role in a great move before.
I would bet we will be seeing more of her in bigger roles soon.
