Meaningful and charming

What a treat this TV movie turned out to be.

It's quite fascinating to see the effect in 1977 of the broadcast on TV of Roots on both black and white folk in a small Southern town. Good reminder how much prejudice there was in the 70s.

Maggie Grace is just right for the role - her awkwardness and sweetness are perfect for the role of the simple good hearted hair dresser. Adam Brody plays her construction supervisor love interest. He's a likable actor who should be on TV more. Elizabeth McGovern is quite droll as the bigoted scheming comically villain hairdresser. It's great she gets to show another side from the rather bland Downton Abbey role. Good performance too from Uzo Aduba as Maggie's black best friend and partner. She doesn't overdo her black awareness. Cicely Tyson who was in the original Roots makes an appearance too.

Watch this one - it's a gem.
