This is a long-awaited film telling the story of the trials of Medgar Evers' killer. Medger Evers (James Pickens, Jr.) was a black civil-rights activist in Mississippi who was shot to death in 1963. Despite very persuasive evidence that Byron De La Beckwith (James Woods) was indeed his killer, the all-white juries hearing his case at that time acquitted him (he was tried twice). In this film, with the aid of Ever's widow Myrlie (Whoopie Goldberg), Bobby DeLaughter (Alec Baldwin), a young lawyer, gathers enough new evidence to bring Beckwith in for a third trial. Woods' performance as a wise-cracking bigot is one of the film's highlights.

Chasing after the muderer of of Meager Evers was a watershed moment in our civil rights history when he was convicted. Thankfully, they made a worthy movie of the hunt of the truly evil killer Byron De La Beckworth, played eerily well by James Woods.

James Woods has always been, I think, one of the most underrated actors in cinematic history, probably because of his narcissistic personality off screen. He doesn't disappoint, though, as Meadger Ever's killer in this. A remorseless man that killed the most promising civil rights leader after King got off with a little help from his friends until a crusading attorney went after him. A powerful movie and one that shouldn't be forgotten because the struggle is not yet over. Thank God, Byron De La Beckworth is gone from this Earth.
