Son of the South, Google Play
The big launch of today is Malcolm & Marie on Netflix, but it’s not the only thing worth watching this evening.
Set in 1960s Alabama, this film follows the story of a white college student who comes of age in the Deep South and eventually joins the Civil Rights Movement. The trailer has a smack of white saviour about it, but produced by Spike Lee and based on the memoir of Bob Zellner, the son and grandson of Ku Klux Klan members, it scores a high 7.4 rating on IMBD.
You can rent it on Google Play for €5.99 from today.
