Great movie - loved it.

This movie was great. Bring Kleenex. My daughter and I had previously read the book and then watched the movie. It was better than expected -- followed the book very closely. There are plenty of good role models. The appropriate age for this movie is about 9 but only because of the violence. This movie should be shown in schools as a supplement to learning about the Civil Rights movement. This movie is not just good for its historical significance but also for reflecting positive interactions between family members. The parents don't bicker with each other and are presented as excellent role models for the children. Highly recommended.
