      Frances H Although the mother in this story is not very smart to leave two adolescents alone too much for a whole summer, I liked the overall plot and James Earl Jones gives his usual wonderful performance in a story of racial prejudice and redemption that gives a good message of tolerance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/26/14 Full Review Audience Member Caught this one on TV. A pretty good one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
