I bought this DVD because of the Beautiful and talented Lynn Whitfield. I have a collection of her movies because she is such a great actress. If you haven't seen her in, A thin line between love and hate, Juniors Grooves, Eve's Bayou, The Josephine Baker story, Love Songs, Somebody Child, The woman of Brewster place, My other mother and the list goes on and on. Then you don't know what you're missing. As you can tell...... I love me some her!! ;)

5.0 out of 5 starsThe Lori Jackso Story - powerful, empowering and must see movie
Verified purchase
Based on a true story. Lynn Whitfield's portrayal of the outspoken and courageous Lori Jackson is wonderful. The story takes place in Virginia n the early 1980's. A Black Marine, Lindsey Scott, is wrongfully accused for raping a white woman. Lori Jackson does everything in her power to clear Scott's name. Sadly, Ms. Jackson lost her own personal battle. If you haven't seen this movie, don't hesitate - own your copy today.

I am hooked on true stories and enjoyed watching this. Just wonder whether the guilty person was ever found and brought to justice.
