Ghosts of Mississippi

reviewed by Vivian Rose, age 14, from US

Like "Ulee's Gold", "Marvin's Room", and "Evita", this film has: plot, substance, and quality acting, all without special effects, aliens, blood, and gore.

It also gets kudos for being based on a true story without being tiresome.

Merleye Evers, the widow of Medgar Evars, an African-American gunned down in his own driveway during the sixties, wants her husband's case reopened. She hopes that in the early nineties, a jury will find Delay Beckwith, the racist radical who murdered her husband and got off the hook, guilty. Attorney Bobby DeLaughter helps Merelye, much to the dismay of his racist neighbors in Mississippi.

This movie is pretty long, but it's definitely worth the two hours + in front of the screen.

My rating: 3 stars

Rating : PG-13
