This movie is on both the AFI's 100 Years 100 Cheers list, and Mark Hughes' "The Best Films Never Nominated For The Oscar For Best Picture," which I'm watching for my 3rd 101 Things in 1001 Days. It's also among my own 100 Favorite Movies. My description is a bit flip for the serious subject matter, and there are outstanding performances by the African American cast members, particularly Denzel Washington (won his first Oscar), Morgan Freeman and Andre Brauer. Definitely worth watching. Repeatedly.
