Rent Boycott on DVD


2001 Rated PG 1hr 53m

Interweaving vintage newsreels, stock footage and home movies with scenes depicting events surrounding the birth of the civil rights movement, this made-for-cable drama recounts the story behind the Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott of 1955. Iris Little-Thomas plays Rosa Parks, the black seamstress whose refusal to sit at the back a bus kindles the flames of protest, and Jeffrey Wright delivers an inspired performance as the young Martin Luther King.
