I’ll let you in on a secret, this film I’ve already seen. Regardless of that, I felt that it was important to get the message out about this very special story. Denzel Washington directs and stars in this film about Professor Melvin Tolson and his 1935 Wiley College debate team.
The film co-stars Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and a group of talented young actors including Jurnee Smollett, Nate Parker and Denzel Whitaker.
The Great Debaters opens on Christmas day and if you know like I know you would want to see it much sooner than later!
