    This is an essential "must-see" for all black people, especially to help cope with the times of blatant police brutality..

    A winning period drama. Characters I rooted for besides Booke, who seemed a little weird due to her accent. Yet, it was a predictable 'sports' movie - debating is the sport here - and the theme of race was a bit overdone IMO.

    This is interesting, and important story to be told, and it features some great performances, but for some reason I was just bored to tears. It plays like your typical, cliche, feel-good sports movie, with the sport being debating. Maybe that's why I couldn't engage... Whatever it was, I couldn't stop fidgeting.

    Awful movie in so many ways. Poorly casted young actors lacking abilities to rise above high school level dramatic acting, and even that felt stiff and canned.
