The true story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till, who was brutally lynched in 1955 while visiting his cousins in Mississippi.
This is one very intense film that is another story of how justice is out of order where it is based in 1950’s. The cruelty that is told here brings this story to feel the core of how disgusting humans can be in the treatment of colour people and reminded of how much they are victims and how they live in fear of what can happen to them as to their rightgs and freedom.
The film captures actor Danielle Deadwyler amazing emotion of a grieving mother that holds this film together as it is quiet lenthy in the process in telling the sad brutal story of her son Emmett.
The are some moments in the film that I feel that could of been shorter, but to be the director of this must have been difficult to cut as this was all emotional from start to finish and Chinonye Chukwu, must be applauded in all direction of the film.
The conclusion leaves you flat as to the outcome of what happened years later, and still marks you as to the times then and now in such racism times we live in. Mamie Till Mobley left a powerful stance behind her as to her dedication in fighting for her one and only son.
Powerful film of performance!
