Miracle at St. Anna

Spike Lee‘s new film, Miracle at St. Anna, tells the tale of four African-American soldiers during World War II who fought against the Nazis. Both the film and (African-American WWII veteran and author) James McBride’s book – upon which the screenplay (co-written with Lee) is based, have been accused of re-writing history, due to the fact that there were no Negro soldiers at the real incident. Now it’s clear why he got angry with Clint Eastwood recently. Still, it looks like an interesting film, and Lee sure has an identifiable style all his own, albeit often controversial and race-based.
