The Long Walk Home

BBBB

(out of 5)


Following the announcement of the black boycott of public transport in 1955, a Montgomery, Alabama maid () decides that she too will walk to work every single day, even though it wears her out and makes her late. This activism creates a new awareness in the mother () of the household where she is employed, a sheltered woman who wises up to the realities of what is going on around her before feeling inspired to get involved. Naturally, this rouses incredible anger from her family and friends, particularly her straight-laced husband (). This satisfying drama has no easy answers for difficult problems, recognizing that many of the issues being dealt with are still major one today. Goldberg and Spacek are both top-notch, and they are ably supported by an excellent ensemble cast.
