Based on a true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.
Sometimes I just don't know what to make of movies like this, based on true stories during racially charged times. Not the story, or the performance. But the fact that this was less than 50 years ago. Less than 15 years before I was born. It's staggering people thought like this towards the end of the 20th century and absolutely depressing that there are still those that think this way now.
