Critic Reviews for Prom Night in Mississippi
Mainly the film is obliged to circle around the absent centre of the conflict, the dark heart of the very issue under scrutiny. Consequently, like a skinny boy in an oversized tux, it has to pad.
Audience Reviews for Prom Night in Mississippi
Holy shit. I really expected this movie to be a disappointment of something with a lot of potential but it was amazing. Easy to watch documentary that is both baffling and hopeful. The kids are all very interesting and well spoken and give you a lot of insight into what is going on.
A very inspirational film about two opposite races in a controversy over the white only prom and the black only prom. It's very sad to see these things still going on nowadays, because I thought this was far over and done by now, but I was very wrong. Prom Night In Mississippi is a beautiful documentary showing off the world/culture and how they are still able to interact with one another without be scared of the opposite race! Wonderful film!
A wonderful film detailing the little known practices of a Mississippi town that has traditionally held black and white proms financed by local parents. Morgan Freeman, a citizen of the town, agrees to pay for a mixed prom to end the backward practice. What becomes quite clear is that students attending the prom are far more intelligent than their parents. Paul Saltzman however wastes too much time in his film showing us far too much of the prom itself. That wasn't the most interesting part of the saga Paul.
