There are videos that go into Video Sunday and then there are videos that deseve their very own posts. This is one such video.
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin court decision it seems to me that we need something good for once. And I admit it. I wouldn’t have pegged the Hallmark Channel to provide that good thing I need, but then I saw today’s trailer for The Watsons Go to Birmingham (no titular 1963). On the one hand I see no reason in the world why this movie couldn’t have been in theaters first. That said, the facts that (A) It was made at all and (B) Proper money was put into it (as the wife of a sometimes director of noir films, I can tell you right now that period pieces are bloody expensive) are more than enough to satisfy me. There’s more info on it at The Huffington Post, naturally.
