A Soldier's Story
In the towm of Tynen, Louisiana, a black Master Sergeant is found shot to death just outside the local Army Base. A military lawyer, also a black man, is sent from Washington to conduct an investigation. Facing an uncooperative chain of command and fearful black troops, Captain Davenport must battle with deceipt and prejudice in order to find out exactly who really did kill Sergeant Waters.
This movie is up there with one of the best flashback movies that I have seen and instead of them being different from what everybody else has said, they describe this character who has died and by the end of it we see a whole character arc for him because he goes from being a likeable person to a terrible person to a person that you kind of feel sorry for since he changed who he was in order to please people and in the end he lost everybody and everything. Norman is a great director.
a nice enjoyable, well-acted, mostly black cast, mystery film.
