Review We have heard many stories, mostly on film, of the turbulent South before the Civil Rights Movement. Invariably, the cattle prod which sparks the discussion is some spoiled, uppity white woman accusing a black man of rape. Best represented in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, this catalyst for the injustices against African-Americans in a land of racism also factored in prominently in the tale of Rosewood and in the form of other violent acts in The Birth of a Nation...Others like Cry Freedom or The Hurricane put the white guy front-and-center or rely on him as a key instrument to help those who cannot help themselves. Heavens Fall unfortunately ends up in the latter category. I won't go so far to justifying that "white guilt" is the presiding factor in the decision for the way it plays out, but writer/director Terry Green subdues the outrage by keeping things straightforward and even-keeled. There's little to applaud and only a base "what a shame" kind of anger. All in all, Heavens Fall is an introduction to history; a prologue whose past should be better explored.
