Movie Summary

Director:
Jeb Stuart
Released:
2010
Rating:
PG-13
Blood Done Sign My Name stars Nate Parker (The Great Debaters) along with Golden Globe-winner Ricky Schroder (TV's 24) in this electrifying true story as told in the award-winning book by Timothy Tyson. When a black Vietnam War vet is murdered by whites in small-town North Carolina, it sparks a firestorm of violent protest. Amid the rising chaos, a local teacher (Parker) and newly arrived preacher (Schroder) will risk everything to see justice done and change the brutal legacy of the past. From writer/director Jeb Stuart (screenwriter of Die Hard), it's a powerful, emotionally explosive film the New York Times applauds as "...rich and fascinating."

    Comes off as a painfully old-fashioned, flatly directed exercise in passionless historical reenactment.
