Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

At the birth of two babies, one white and one black, a mysterious and powerful Conjure Woman (Maya Angelou) prophesizes, "You're going to make a difference and start the change." And indeed, the do. Luke Winter (Cody Newton) and Joshua "Sonny" Monroe (Duane McLaughlin) grow up as best friends in a rural Georgia town in the 1940's. On one of their youthful adventures they uncover a human bone. Their discovery leads the town's new sheriff, Frank Richards (Dean Cain), to reopen an investigation of the unsolved murders of three black men. As he doggedly pursues the case, however, he learns that most of the townspeople would prefer the truth stay hidden. With each new clue, disturbing new facts surface, making the sheriff more determined to see justice prevail. As the case threatens to split the town apart, Sonny and Luke feel pressured to conform to the segregated ways of the past. Luke is, however, unrelenting in his conviction that skin color is no barrier to lifelong friends. Tensions rise and Sonny discovers he has become the main suspect in yet one more murder. A highly charged trial ensues, polarizing a town that refuses to acknowledge its past. The Runaway is a stirring story of how friendship, determination, and conviction can generate racial change in one heart or an entire town.

Format: DVD
I loved this film; I kind of wish it would get the Oscars; Unfortunately, it was originally aired on TV: You have these two boys born on the same day; One is black and the other is white; They hook up and become the best of friends; Yet, this is 1940s Georgia; And the black boy's sister gets pregnant presumably by her white employer, then someone turns up dead and things get right ugly. Dean Cain plays the sheriff, who just coming back from WW2, wants to see the right thing done, yet, the prejudices of the time seem to want to stay the same although clearly, times were a-changing; Maya Angelou has a pivotal role as a seer; You can't help but love watching her especially when she hollers "Justice Is Served" in the courtroom. Debbie Morgan, a great yet underrated actress has the role of the black boy's mother; And a performance she gives indeed. A good Hallmark movie indeed;

This an excellent film for the entire family. It is a very touching story, very entertaining and gives the family lots of topics to discuss after viewing. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This movie is excellent with great performances by the entire cast especially Dean Cain who plays a sheriff in a small racist town who helps protect a young black boy from a murder he did not commit. The tension runs high in the town...and the end offers justice but until then...one is kept guessing as who the murderer is. Highly recommended!

If You enjoy the south where prejudice reigned but fairness prevails in spite of it, you will like this. It is a fun story along with a mystery that unravels along with a touch of romance. Nice comfortable, family type movie. I enjoyed it. As usual Dean Cain did a fine job.
