From Everybody:



The fact that this is based on a real story, makes it just a little bit better. It's incridible how much happens in just one lifetime. We follow Cecil from boy to old man, from son of a slave to free man visiting Barak Obama, from kid to old man with grandchildren.
It's a great trip down American history - and even though they could have casted actors that looked more like all the presidents (James Marsden as Kennedy.... come on!) it does not move the focus from the fantastic story.
