Faith & Film Night: The Long Walk Home

Tomorrow's film presentation is The Long Walk Home. The film, which stars Sissy Spacek and Whoopi Goldberg, centers around a white family in Montgomery, Alabama, during the beginning of the civil rights movement. The following is a great treatment of the film from
"This underrated 1990 film directed by Richard Pearce (Country, Leap of Faith) features exceptionally nuanced performances by both Sissy Spacek (Coal Miner's Daughter) and Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost).... Spacek plays a Southern socialite who becomes gradually enlightened by the plight of her housekeeper, played by Whoopi Goldberg, as she struggles to raise her family amid the increasing turmoil, prejudice, and violence around her. A well-done treatment of an important period of American history, The Long Walk Home is an effective and accurate period drama. It is also an opportunity to see fine, understated performances by two very popular actresses in an earnest and socially conscious setting." --Robert Lane
