Zima v Baltimoru - Liberty Heights

Slovenski opis filma:

V zabavnem in dramatičnem filmu igra oskarjevec Adrien Brody. Zgodba ponuja vpogled v obdobje velikih družbenih sprememb, ki so imele pomembno vlogo pri oblikovanju ameriške zgodovine. Pripoved je postavljena v Baltimore leta 1954. Življenje tamkajšnjih prebivalcev krojijo antisemitizem, rasizem in razredne razlike. V tem okolju spoznamo židovsko družino Kurtzman z očetom Natom, mamo Ado ter odraščajočima sinovoma Benom in Vanom. Mlajši Ben se zaljubi v temnopolto sošolko Sylvio in tudi Van spozna dekle svojih sanj, medtem pa se njun oče znajde v denarnih škripcih.

Originalni opis filma:

Anti-Semitism, race relations, coming of age, and fathers and sons: in Baltimore from fall, 1954, to fall, 1955. Racial integration comes to the high school, TV is killing burlesque, and rock and roll is pushing the Four Lads off the Hit Parade. Ben, a high school senior, and his older brother Van are exploring "the other": in Ben's case, it's friendship with Sylvia, a Black student; with Van, it's a party in the WASP part of town and falling for a debutante, Dubbie. Sylvia gives Ben tickets to a James Brown concert; Dubbie invites Van to a motel: new worlds open. Meanwhile, their dad Nate, who runs a numbers game, loses big to a small-time pusher, Little Melvin; a partnership ensues.
