"...[Wright] delivers a remarkable performance..."

Product Description:

Clark Johnson (HOMICIDE) makes his feature-film directorial debut with BOYCOTT, the story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which helped the rise of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. After Rosa Parks (Iris Little-Thomas) refuses to sit in the back of the bus and is arrested, the Montgomery Improvement Association decides to fight back, naming Dr. King its president and staging a boycott against the Montgomery buses, bringing the black community together in one of the first major organized battles against segregation and racism in the 1950s. But the grass-roots struggle grows harder every day, as bad weather and an aggressive Montgomery police force threaten to put an end to the boycott.

Jeffrey Wright is a revelation as Dr. King. His inspirational speeches and personal struggles take center stage. Director Johnson combines actual newsreel footage with testimonials and handheld shots, switching from color to black and white, going in and out of focus to give the film a documentary-like quality. The soundtrack, featuring songs by Nat King Cole, Dizzy Gillespie, Aaron Neville with Sweet Honey in the Rock, and BeBe Winans, helps set the tone of the film, yet another important, well-made story from HBO.
