I would disagree that Mississipi Burning was a "powerful" film, to me it came across as rather offensive in how it's premise was handled.

Hey James do you remember him growing up. Although I guess anyone over the age of 50 will probably remember him during his activist years.

I only vaguely remember him. That's partially because I have lived my entire life on the east coast and he didn't get the kind of press here that he got in the west. Plus, during the height of his "celebrity", I was 4, 5, 6 years old. The first major national news story I remember following to any degree was Watergate.

Timing-wise, releasing this film does make sense since there probably aren't as many people alive now who remember his strikes, and heck the whole "path to citizenship" debate is a variation on this theme.

Still, never got the impression that this would be more than a middling biopic, but I might check it out on Netflix.
