This Oscar winning film is about people with varied background struggle with issues pertaining to racism on the surface. But deep down it is a their individual struggle with life and relationships.
This is an excellently weaved movie. I have seen many films where there are multiple characters are involved. They range from rom coms to drama but this is different as it deals with a engraved problem of racism in the American society very much like what we have in India like religion and caste system. it is not an easy film to live with in parts but as the director peals off the layers it seems racism is just a face to the more individual problems people face in their day-to-day life. Every story is so well-connected that the transition between scene and characters seems natural. Some bits in the film are quite moving and unexpected.
There are many actors in the film but some are worth mentioning like Matt Dillon, Don Cheadle, Thandie Newton but actors did not get a fair share of screen time like Sandra Bullock & Brendan Fraser. But all in all everyone has been casted well. As it is a story spanning 30 odd hours it needed good editing skills and it is a job well done.
P.s. – Tough movie to handle but if you like serious stuff full of emotions then this is for you
