Motion Picture Magic: Miracle at St. Anna

This move is amazing! I just have to say that the artistry and integrity behind the film is outstanding. I was lucky to attend a screening of the film last night and to meet the actors and Mr. Spike Lee himself. The "core four" are four amazing actors who portray Buffalo Soldiers in 1944's World War. The movie is engaging from the beginning and has both happy and sad moments, but is definitely a must-see. Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonzo, and Omar Benson Miller do a fantastic job of bringing the characters in James McBride's book to life. A very political film, Miracle at St. Anna is something everyone needs to go out and see. Spike voiced last night that people need to know that African Americans and Latinos have been dying for this country since day one. I highly recommend this film. Go support!

Incredible, I just read a blog post concerning this very thing. And now you speak upon it as well.

I have to check this film out. Spike Lee usually never disappoints.
