The Watsons Go To Birmingham (2013) Rated PG

IWatsons go to birminghamn 1963, an African-American family travel from Michigan to Alabama. Based on the book by Christopher Paul Curtis. Starring Bryce Clyde Jenkins, Harrison Knight, Skai Jackson, Anika Noni Rose, David Alan Grier

This isn’t a bad film. I rather enjoyed it. I can’t really comment on the book/film adaption because I haven’t read the book. I love that it has the caring loving family at the base of the film even if the plot didn’t get s deep as it could with civil rights. To help cover that they include a montage of civil rights videos into the story. It’s as if they go to Alabama and get a taste of segregation and the civil rights but it doesn’t seem to affect them. It’s like they are on the out skirts looking in and not really changing them. Like I said this is enjoyable to watch and it’s a great family film that does highlight the civil rights. It’s watchable.
