Just caught this. I thought it was pretty good. It shed light on a slice of American life rarely seen on film. The story had a low budget feel, but the acting for the most was good, especially Nia Long. Evan Ross wasn't bad. I also enjoyed the father and sister. The family dynamics were interesting. I wouldn't have minded more of a focus on that, and on the parents.
The guys in the lynch mob could've been better in the acting department. But I was glad the movie was willing to address these issues. I especially liked the discussion in the teacher's class about religion, culture, and nationality.
