Synopsis:
As three civil rights activists drive down a desolate stretch of highway, headlights ominously draw near. Telling each other to stay calm, they have no way of knowing that in minutes they will disappear into the night and spark one of the most explosive murder investigations in history. Enter straight-laced Ward (Willem Dafoe) and deceptively easy-going Anderson (Gene Hackman). Can these two philosophically opposed FBI agents overcome their differences and uncover the chilling mystery of a small Ku Klux Klan - ridden community before an entire town is torn apart by racism?

Must-see classic - Mississippi Burning review by FM

Spoiler Alert
01/03/2019

Shocking and harrowing tale, hard to believe it was as recent as 1964, on the other hand it is hard to believe how far we haven't come.

Characters were well portrayed with some excellent performances including of utterly repugnant characters.
