Spike Lee's new film was released on the 5th February and can be legally rented or purchased on Youtube.

It's a really gripping film about the grandson of a Klansman in Alabama in the 1960s who decides to oppose Jim Crow in the South and support civil rights protestors. Based on a true story.

I'd strongly recommend it - the acting is excellent and there are no dull moments. You know when you're watching a film on Youtube and you start browsing websites during the dull bits? That didn't happen for me, there aren't any dull bits in this film.

The film is quite hard to watch in places, they don't shy away from depicting how brutal the white supremacist regime in the South and their supporters were.
