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.

I thought this was going to cover Liverpool's 2005 Champions League victory but it's a look at Steven Gerrard and what made him.
Born on the 30th May 1980 in Whiston, Merseyside, Steven Gerrard joined the Liverpool FC Academy at age 8. He left 26 years later, having won two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Cup, one FA Community Shield, one UEFA Super Cup and, in what is widely regarded as one of the most thrilling matches of all-time, one UEFA Champions League. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year a record eight times.
MAKE US DREAM takes a close-up look at the man behind the legend - taking in the highs of Istanbul, the inner conflict of staying loyal to his boyhood club and the turmoil of coming agonisingly close to the trophy that has always eluded him: The Premier League Trophy.
As a fan of Liverpool, I'll be watching this when it becomes available on Prime Video for sure.
Kenny is another very good documentary for Liverpool fans, looking at what former player and manager Kenny Dalglish meant to Liverpool and what Liverpool meant to Kenny Dalglish.
