CRY FREEDOM (1987), Sir Richard Attenborough's lesser known cinematic masterpiece about the apartheid era in South Africa, made just four years after GANDHI. Fine performances by Kevin Kline and the young Denzel Washington.
Cry Freedom, 1987: I was very excited to see the film, as it dealt with South Africa, which is a place I don't know much about. I have taken note of the emerging art scene from Johannesburg and Cape Town, so it impressive to see how much South Africa's infrastructure has improved since the film was made. I also loved learning about Biko and Woods, who are both brave, flawed men.
