1996. USA. Directed by Charles Burnett. With Carl Lumbly, Beau Bridges, Lorraine Toussaint, Bill Cobbs, Allison Jones. This Disney television movie, which movingly re-creates plantation life during slavery and deals (as do so many of Burnett’s films) with the complications of family, is marked by superb performances. 96 min.
