4 out of 10 ...or just another color
Pauly from Donegal, 15 Jan 2008
This film deals with love, racism and moral values. The character of Coleman Silk is loosely based upon the late New York Times literary critic Anatole Broyard, which was an african-american man that people believed was white. Fine performances are put in by Hopkins, Kidman and Ed Harris. This film is definitely worth viewing.
