    • Excerpt: a portrait in courage that pairs the past with the present.
  • [New] | Mary Ann and Frederic Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: An inspiring documentary about a moral leader who modeled an ethic of love, nonviolence, and hope.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: “Good Trouble” is what Lewis, who proudly recounts having been arrested forty times during the civil rights era and five more during his years in Congress, calls fighting for what’s right. As Porter shows us, it has been the 79 year-old’s defining characteristic.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Essential portrait of the US Congressman and civil-rights activist, for its lessons in the power of passive resistance to injustice, and its underscoring of how America has regressed in recent years.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The arc of John Lewis’s fight for equality and justice is long and shows no signs of slowing down. Director Dawn Porter shows the methods may have changed from the ’60s, but the results are the same – some enjoy rights callously denied to others.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: There may not be a more inspiring non-fiction film this year.
