A very powerful and emotionally moving film.

Queen Latifah is highly underrated as an actress. I have enjoyed everything she has done.

Dakota Fanning has broken away from her earlier ventures as a screaming child in various horror type films and turns in a wonderful performance.

Hot foot it to the next feature. Superlative story in the deep South circa 1964. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see what the world would really be like if were colorblind - took people as people. I think the story makes you laugh, cry, hope, and care.

The acting is top-notch.

It may seem like a make-believe tale that couldn't have happened, but the legacy of such ugliness has not disappeared. The film leaves you with a kind of hope that good triumphs in the end.

A good movie based on the New York times bestselling novel about a 14 year-old girl who flee her abusive father to South Carolina to learn about her late mother. Dakota Flanning played the 14 year-old girl and she's the biggest stand out in the movie. Also in the movie are Queen Latifah and Jennifer Hudson. A good cast help the movie along. Filmgoers will get a better idea of living in the south during the early 1960's.
