‘Deadline’ ~ CFDb Review & Recommendation

DEADLINE – AVAILABLE TODAY July 17, 2012 on DVD and Video on Demand!  Don’t miss it!

 

The murder of an African American youth in rural Alabama has gone unpunished, unsolved and uninvestigated for almost twenty years. But that changes when Nashville Times reporter Matt Harper meets an idealistic blue blood bent on discovering the truth.

Harper undertakes the investigation despite the opposition of his publisher, violent threats from mysterious forces, a break-up with his fiancee and his father’s cancer diagnosis. Deadline is a story of murder, family, race, and of redemption – for a small Southern town and for Matt Harper.

CFDb MOVIE REVIEW

This film is based on a true story and it’s a FANTASTIC story!  I loved everything about this film, except the fact that it was based on a true story.  I don’t know why it still shocks me what people have done in the past, and are still doing today.  Rascism is hatred towards another human being as a result of what they look like, what absurdity!  This film brought out this hatred in a powerful way.

CFDb HIGHLY recommends watching this film, it is fit for the entire family and I believe children should watch this as well and learn about how to treat other human beings, no matter what they look like.  Has anyone seen the “Touched By An Angel” episode where Monica has black skin for her assignment?  I believe that is another powerful film about rascism.

Don’t miss this gem of a film!  I don’t want to say too much and ruin it for you, but watching “Deadline” was time well spent.

 

Eric Roberts as Ronnie Bullock

Eric Roberts, as well as ALL the cast in this film did a fabulous job!  This was a film that caused me to really feel like I was there, experiencing what the people were experiencing.  It was the courtroom scene that was the most intense for me, opening up my eyes to what some people have gone through as a result of being brown skinned.  It seemed as if they weren’t even considered human beings.  What struck me most is the fact that these rascist people came from a long line of rascist people.  Children, for the most part, copy their parents, and become their parents, to a great extent.  These people are filled with such hatred and for no reason other than that was the way they were raised and saw their parents behave.

Time to wake up parents and aunts and cousins and make sure the children see Jesus in us, instead of the devil.
