Must See Movie
24 June 2006 | by aggiekutieSee all my reviews

I actually saw this movie being filmed and got to be an extra in quite a few scenes. The movie was shot in the little town of Anderson, Texas. The town pretty much looks like what you see in the movie, so the movie crews didn't have to do much to the town. A lot of the kids played together in the park down the street from the "Town Hall", which is actually the Grimes County Courthouse. We didn't realize then that we were playing tag and seeing how fast we could spin on the merry-go-round with real Hollywood actors, because they acted just like normal kids.

This movie deals mainly with the segregation issue in the south. It shows how small towns dealt with the issue in their own ways, instead of what you always see in movies about what happened in the big cities. Small towns weren't as open with the de-segregation issue as larger cities were. I convinced my seventh grade teacher to show this in our Texas History class and it had a great effect. (Hint to all the teachers out there... this is a really good movie to use as a teaching tool!) In my mind, this is a MUST SEE MOVIE!!!
