The Great Debaters

I was thinking of all kinds of clever and wonderful things to say about this film but I honestly think I'll let it speak for itself. Don't let the fact it's from Oprah's Harpo Productions scare you away from this great bit of history. Sure, it's been slightly altered for dramatic purposes and I can fully understand why Denzel Washington (only his second sitting in the director's chair to date!) chose to do this yet the core of the accomplishment is well captured and the fact they were able to turn this into such a dramatic feature is a testament to the talents involved. Not one for late night but certainly one for the whole family.
