There is one moment in this film where Dr. King is overcome with fear and prays to God for strength and it is one of Wright's strongest scenes. It shows exaclty the fear that one might feel if suddenly realizing that you might not live to long just because of standing forwhat was right. Wright's speeches are very King like and in delivering his lines, Wright takes on a slowness of speech that was characteristic of the way Dr. King spoke. He spoke slowly as to give thought first to every word before before it was uttered.
I do find at times that the handheld camera is a bit much and can be a distraction but it can be easily overlooked.
I urge you to buy this film and watch it with your children. It is simply brilliant.
Also there was some odd scenes at the beginning and at the end. What was that baby superimposed over the bus window? And what about that ending? What was that about? I didn't like that at all.
But overall the acting was strong and I learned a lot about what happened during the bus boycott.
