If you love older movies, than you just might love this new one that was just released. It’s called Showing Roots and it’s based in the 1970’s! What a great year, right!? I’ve seen Uzo Aduba play in Orange is the New Black, so it was great to hear about her playing in another movie. I thought she was an amazing actress, so I enjoyed watching this movie.
Return to the 1970s when the inspirational drama Showing Roots arrives on DVD at Walmart on June 20 from Lionsgate. The film tells the story of two women who cross racial boundaries to form a friendship and fight against inequality in their small town. Maggie Grace and Uzo Aduba lead an all-star cast that includes Adam Brody, Elizabeth McGovern, and Cicely Tyson.From director Michael Wilson (The Trip to Bountiful), the Showing Roots DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
In 1977, as the miniseries “Roots” hits the airwaves, two women are inspired to try and integrate their small Southern town. In a place where there are still “right” and “wrong” sides of the tracks, these two young women — one white, one black — forge an unlikely friendship that sparks a journey of independence and self-discovery, and ultimately results in the creation of the perfect hairdo. Stars Maggie Grace, Uzo Aduba, Elizabeth McGovern, Adam Brody, Cicely Tyson.
