I thought this movie was very well written. It is kind of long, but the storyline is wonderful & anything by Alex Haley is amazing!!!! I love watching real movies with real stories consisting of the history or America.

Tyson played the role of a woman who was treated so poorly & had so many negative things happen, but still had faith it would get better. Her story in this movie should show people not to take things for granted & it is possible for things to get better.

I thought all the characters had significant roles & problems. It just shows how much the world has changed since this time period.
