Amazon.com

A shameful chapter in American history is powerfully dramatized in Rosewood, but moviegoers in 1997 may not have been ready for the African American equivalent of Schindler''s List. And while the massacre that occurred in the nearly all-black town of Rosewood, Florida, in 1922 cannot compare in scale to the Nazi holocaust, it potently illustrates the same issues of racism and inherited intolerance that percolate at every level of human existence. An estimated 40 to 150 blacks were killed in Rosewood by an all-white lynch mob from the neighboring town of Sumner, where a white woman falsely claimed she''d been assaulted by a black man. The resulting mayhem ignited a tinderbox of resentment toward the flourishing citizens of Rosewood, and those few who survived were so traumatized that they remained silent until the truth was revealed by an investigative journalist in 1982.

The film is blessed with richly authentic production design, lush cinematography, and a subtly effective John Williams score, and director John Singleton and screenwriter Gregory Poirier embellish the truth of Rosewood with a fictional hero named Mann (Ving Rhames), who arrives to buy a five-acre plot coveted by Rosewood''s white grocer (John Voight). The emerging trust between these two characters--and the fate of an extended family led by a defiant father (Don Cheadle)--gives shape to the movie''s devastating depiction of racism and the courage of those who opposed the lynch mob''s brutality. Singleton and Poirier fall prey to some bad dialogue and a broadly unbalanced depiction of bloodthirsty hayseeds, but the film''s passion is maintained by its superb cast and the timeless echoes of history. --Jeff Shannon

Two of America''s original sins still alive today - racism and a fetish for guns - form the basis for this movie, which is pretty close to what actually happened. Only the character Mann is invented. Duke Perry, who shot Sam Carter in cold blood before they lynched him and riddle his body with bullets, is actually Bryant Hudson, the only white formally charged in the massacre. During Florida''s argument against reparations in 1994, they tried to claim that the sheriff had gone to Sylvester Carrier''s home to warn him of the impending attack. Fortunately, the Florida legislators didn''t believe in this BS and awarded $2 million in reparations to the survivors who could prove they were in Rosewood at the time of the attack as well as descendants. This movie is hard to watch, especially for those who mourn the growth of hatred in this country. And for those who think the Confederate flag doesn''t symbolize hatred for blacks, this movie should make you think again.

One of the finest historical dramas I’ve ever seen. Realistic and riveting. This movie helped me better understand some of the many facets of post slavery prejudice and abuse suffered by African Americans.

Jon Voight did an excellent job in the role of the store owner conflicted by societal norms in his 1020’s small Florida town. He is forced to take a stand for good or evil when irrational mob violence takes over the town of Rosewood.

In 1923, a prosperous black town in Florida was burned to the ground, its people hunted and murdered, all because a white woman falsely claimed that a black man sexually assaulted her. This woman''s husband knew deep down she was a tramp but chose not to face up to it. Shocking to learn another man who initiated,ignited the townspeople to violently react in this manner was aware of the truth from the beginning.

Hard to watch but a excellent movie. Great acting and storyline that''s difficult to watch. The movie demonstrates just how cruel people can be when it comes racism. I''m a movie buff but had never seen this film. Heart wrenching to watch one human being treating another like an animal. Sparing no one, burying those they killed in a mass grave. The terrible acts that were committed reminded me of the horrible, mind boggling history of the holocaust.

One shining light was the young child who lost respect for his cruel, prejudiced father teaching him to follow in his footsteps by example utilizing bullying tactics. This man was the worst of them all.

I really enjoyed the movie! I recently learned that Rosewood is the only case in our country where reparations were given to the victims of racial hatred and violence. I won''t write a sermon, but interestingly enough, the movie shows how our sins do not affect just us. They affect those around us. One lie killed many, many innocent lies. This movie shows the ugliness of our hearts.

This movie deserves more than five stars for several reasons: First and foremost because it is based on a true story about a part of this countries history back in 1923. Secondly, the acting is excellent with established stars such as Jon Voight, Don Cheadle, Ester Rolle and Ving Rhames in his best role ever. This movie is a fantastic teaching tool to explain to children how things used to be and why they should never be that way again. This film is so good it invites you to research for yourself the facts about what happened to the town of Rosewood, Florida. There is plenty of action but some scenes are to violent for young children. This is a must see for every American citizen of all origins and for every other citizen that is interested in the history of this nation.

... despite the mitigation of a Hollywood love story and a fictitious super-hero, but still not as painful as the TRUTH, the true and well-documented story of an ethnic cleansing in Florida in 1923, when, over several days, European-American mobs attacked the peaceful and prosperous African-American village of Rosewood, in Levy County. During the attack, survivors estimated, as many as eighteen African-Americans and two European-Americans were. Most of the buildings, including churches and a school, were burned. The community was abandoned and, in spite of permanent loss of land and homes, the citizens never returned. Women and children were rescued, as shown in this film, by the crew of the train that regularly stopped at the village. Given the three days of carnage, news of the events reached national newspaper attention. Reporters actually began to arrive on the scene. The governor of Florida was alarmed and asked the nearest local authorities if help was wanted from the National Guard; the sheriff replied that he didn''t want help. After the event, the governor did convene an inquest, but no prosecutions or efforts to assist the refugees resulted.

Even without further attention from the outside world, the Rosewood Massacre would have been one of the most atrocious and obvious acts of ethnic/racial "cleansing" in America''s history. In 1992, however, a reporter for the St. Petersburg Times uncovered evidence of the fate of Rosewood and published a story. That story led to national scrutiny. In 1993, aged survivors descendants of survivors of the Massacre sued the state of Florida for compensation. Confronted by undeniable evidence, the Florida Legislature passed a compensation bill of $2,100,000 and established a scholarship fund for Rosewood descendants. Public opinion in Florida was incensed at such acknowledgement of racism in the state''s past; letters written to the legislators ran ten to one against any compensation or recognition of the truth.

Events in Rosewood in 1923 were probably far less picturesque than those shown in this film. Jon Voight does a splendid job of acting in the role of a white store-keeper caught between his own safety and his humanity. Ving Rhames is almost persuasive in his role as the "lone ranger" WW1 veteran -- the African-American stranger who rescues the children. Don Cheadle is impressive as the Rosewood music teacher who decides to fight back. All three characters are fictional, but perhaps only cinematographic fiction can begin to suggest the horror that the citizens of Rosewood experienced when their fellow Americans decided to wipe their community off the face of the Earth.

This moving film is about deep-seeded hatred and racism that explodes when a lie is perpetuated in a small town (Rosewood) in 1930s Florida. This is a hard film to watch but one should to see how hatred when fueled is a rampaging fire. The director (Jon Singleton) uses fire, the dark, the cold and the forest to convey anger & passion, ignorance, being heartless & lost, and savagery. This is a ''must-see'' film.
