Mississippi burning by Chris Gerolmo( Visual )

41 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and Turkish and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Mississippi in 1964, this controversial film is based on the true story of the case of three young civil rights workers (in real life they were named James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner) who were brutally murdered in June of 1964. The chaotic aftermath was dubbed Mississippi Burning. This movie is told from the perspective of the FBI's operations to uncover evidence and bring the killers to justice. Anger over the real incident prompted the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965. Although the fim was nominated for six Oscars and won the award for Best Cinematography, it stirred a great deal of controversy when it was released. In the years since, it has come to be considered a classic

"Writer/director Bill Forsyth (Comfort and Joy, Being Human) brings to life this tale, set in the 1950s and based on a novel by Marilynne Robinson, which is neither a sentimental nor simple exploration of familial and emotional bonds. Ruth (Sara Walker) and Lucille (Andrea Burchill) are two young sisters who are abandoned by their mother and raised by a succession of aged relatives, until their unconventional aunt Sylvie (Christine Lahti, Running on Empty) arrives like a breath of fresh air. Sylvie has been living on the road for many years, and her life is detached from the norms of the community; she returns home to bittersweet memories and the town's harsh scrutiny. The girls are thrilled to have a charming young role model and Sylvie's new responsibilities offer her a chance for real love, sharing a home, and a sense of family -- all things she has not felt for a long time. Eventually, as Ruth and Lucille's perceptions of Sylvie change, the two girls develop vastly different ways of relating to this eccentric, original woman"--Container
