The Great Debaters – Denzel is my fav.

Submitted by -- Hitesh Rawat

Well no words can match Denzel Washington’s persona. He always delivers something which surprises you. “The great debaters” I think is his second self directed movie but his work behind the camera was as good as in front of the camera. One thing I mentioned about a good director which I found in this movie too was the distribution of screen space. This movie boasts of some of the biggest stars of the movie industry like Denzel Washington himself, Forest Whitaker (Oscar winner) but at the same time it also cast some of the youngest members likes Denzel Whitaker, Nate Parker and Jurnee Smollett.You can easily sense the brilliance in distribution of screen space.

Performance wise also the movie is of more worth than pleasing.

The movie depicts a small past of James Farmer Jr. (Denzel Whitaker) when he sees the struggle and lynching of black people in the land of Texas due to racial discrimination. The movie shows a Debaters Team from the University of Wiley (for Black students) of which James Farmer Jr. was a part with Nate Parker, Jurnee Smollett and with Denzel Washington as their Teacher. This team Travel across the whole country defeating one by one all the major universities of country including the white universities. By this the strategy of taking the revolution against racial discrimination came up in the national map.

The final scene or debate is shown between Wiley and Harvard University and this is a debate which one should watch out in the movie. All the debates scenes in the movie are brilliant.

Watch this movie. Highly recommended.
