      From 1990, The Long Walk Home is an amazing thought-provoking film that centers around the famous bus boycott that occurred in Montgomery, Alabama back in 1955. It’s all about segregation and equality. We’ve come a long way, as this movie depicts, and yet there is still

      so far to go.

      Whoopi Goldberg stars as Odessa Cutter, a black woman who works as a maid. She walks to and from work, making for very long days.

      Her employers are played by Dwight Schultz, perhaps most well known for his recurring role on Star Trek: the Next Generation, and Sissy Spacek. As time progresses, in an almost involuntary style, Spacek’s Miriam Thompson ends up going against the trend for women on her stature in Montgomery. To her husband’s horror, she’s actually begun to pick up Odessa and take her home, disguising the trips ...

      with other errands.

      It is the evolution of Miriam that is the story here. She doesn’t start out looking to be a leader in civil rights. It never even crossed her mind, but as she slowly takes down the wall that says she is somehow better than

      Odessa, she realizes things aren’t right. It all comes down to a major standoff where she and others face her husband and a crowd of angry men.

      This is an intense and emotional story, and it’s a good one that should be viewed. The acting is superb, too.
