Duhovi Mississippija - Ghosts of Mississippi

Slovenski opis filma:

Leta 1963 je neznani storilec hladnokrvno ustrelil temnopoltega aktivista Medgerja Eversa iz Mississippija. Čeprav so vsi dokazi govorili o tem, da je umor zagrešil belopolti rasist Byron De La Beckwith, ga je porota, sestavljena iz belcev, na dveh sojenjih spoznala za nedolžnega. Film se osredotoča na tretje sojenje, ki ga je izsilila Eversova vdova Myrlie. S pomočjo mladega odvetnika Bobbyja DeLaughterja je zbrala dovolj novih dokazov, da se je Beckwith znova znašel na sodišču. Bo tokrat pravici zadoščeno?

Originalni opis filma:

Ghosts of Mississippi is a real-life drama covering the final trial of Byron De La Beckwith, the assassin of heroic civil rights leader Medgar Evers. The movie begins with the murder on June 12, 1963 and the events surrounding the two initial trials which both ended in hung juries. The movie then covers district attorney Bobby De Laughter's transformation and alliance with Myrlie Evers, Medgar Evers' widow, as he becomes more involved with bringing Beckwith to trial for the third time 30 years later. Byron De La Beckwith was convicted on February 5, 1994, after having remained a free man for much of the 30 years after the murder, giving justice for Medgar Evers' family.
