The Best of Enemies
Centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater, an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis, 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. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.

"I've been on a slow wander to this film, so that I swallow the pill with minimal heartbreak. I was relieved to find this story isn't as devastating as When They See Us. That's not to say that the film avoids the fight; rather, it fights gracefully. It's not "southern charm", it's compassion and consciousness that holds the thing together. It creeps to the point; but, it makes it. We could use more of this rationality now."
