“In My Country” is a must see

I just finished watching this wonderful movie:

“Langston Whitfield (Samuel L. Jackson) is a Washington Post journalist. His editor provocatively sends him to South Africa to cover the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings, in which the perpetrators of murder and torture on both sides during Apartheid are invited to come forward and confront their victims. By telling the unvarnished truth and expressing contrition, they may be granted amnesty…”

The film is a beautiful balance of an emotionally charged factual history with personal struggles in establishing new perceptions of race, and of complicated love. You have to see it!
