Why not? I liked the movie! At least in this movie the white man gets caught and goes to jail for killing a black man. Back in those days that was rare. A white Sheriff that is relentless on catching a white upper class man that kills a black man was movie worthy! Heck it happens in this day and age and people walk! At least that's what's some say? Maybe you want to see a movie about Dan Branch and how he ran his county? Lamar Potts was an awesome man and Sheriff! I will attend ! Glad y'all won't be there!

The man that John Wallace went to trial for killing was Wilson Turner( a white man). What makes this part of history so important is that a powerful landowner got convicted on the testimony of two black men, which was unheard of during this time period. It is clear some of you don't have a clue about the facts of this important piece of history. If you are going to bash it at least pick up the book and read the story so you will know the history.
