    This is a film that adds to our understanding of human nature. Yet its impact is lessened by a lack of factual context, and by an inspirational climax that may leave one feeling good and uneasy in equal measure. show more

    This should be required viewing every African-American who feels "owed by the US government" for having endured slavery. These boys endured dehumanizing conditions also, but never expeced anything to be given to them, just the opportunity to get it. They then took the opportunity given to them and bettered themselves, not thinking of themselves, but of how they inturn could help others. The movie sends a very powerful message.
