Has anyone seen the film 'A Time to Kill' with Samuel L Jackson? I think it's amazing but people i'v shown it to just think it's sick and racist. Are they wrong or am i just strange? It's just I it touches a dodgy subject in a truly 'real' and moving way.

    I thought it was a brilliant film too, i can see how it might offend some people, but i thought it dealt with the subject very well.

    A Time to kill is as you say a brilliant movie, very shocking and disturbing to some, but if you do a little research I think you will find it was based on a true story...
    To think that really did happen makes my skin crawl, but things like that do happen and making a movie from it can also be a way for people to see how things can affect different races or cultures...or anyone, in that matter..
    Take care <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
