I am a huge fan of Whoopi Goldberg and she is a fantastic actress whether in a comedy or a show such as this - The Long Walk Home.
One can also appreciate the sense of helplessness of Mariam Thompson played by Sissy Spacek. The desire to do what is right and the desire to honor her husband's expectations.
A great film, a part of history that should teach all of us to embrace and celebrate the differences in societies, cultures, races, and the differences in all of us.
The Long Walk Home focuses on two women, one Black, the other white, in their struggle to come to turns with a movement about to turn their lives upside down. Meet Miriam, the typical white southern woman who lives to keep together her home. Of course her maid, Odessa, is the one who keeps the home. Miriam is not a bad woman. Her maid is just like family but talk of the boycott would be an inconvience to the family. After all, who will clean the shouse. Odessa, is the maid. She is a strong woman and loves her family. She is also tired of the mess going on.
Whoopi Goldberg and Sissey Spacek give sterling performances of women who are forced to change the way life has always been. Both must take risks and with those risks comes a price. Both of these women have outdone themselves in displaying the emotions, anger and disappointments in their lives. Every moment you feel their pain and sympathize with their dilemma. This movie is a testament of the strong southern Black and white women who took a stand for justice at the expense of defying their community. Share with them their story. You will be deeply moved and grateful for their sacrifice.
