As real as it can get. All performances were eye-opening and convincing even the little boy's. The content, action, script, set design was all believable. I felt like I was there witnessing what was happening, maybe because it almost happened to me, but that's another story. Yes, I recommend this movie if you like to here the "N" word; you want to feel superior to others; you were raised to look down on some people as "less than" because their ancestors were slaves. I' am just saying, this film has Americana written all over it, if you was not raised in this culture, and you want to get a look at the underpinnings and root causes of so much violence in the Great U.S.A.
The film serves up the full strength of "race hate" to those of us who just can't get enough of the "real" world train of thought. Enjoy!
