Two great performances from Henson & Rockwell. If you liked Green Book, you'll like this just as much. They are different stories, but in the end the moral is the same. Henson plays the Black Activist, working to make things better with civil liberties that are now the law, but you wouldn't know it in 1970 N. Carolina. And Rockwell thinks the KKK members are the family he's always wanted. Forced to work together, they learn a little about being in the others shoes. Excellent story.
