High Lonesome
A 10-year-old sharecropper's son named Charlie (Joseph Mazzello) is orphaned when his abusive father dies during a fire. But he soon finds comfort and support from a kindly farmer named Walter Osgood (Louis Gossett Jr.). Unfortunately, the man is black, the boy is white and it's the rural South. Not surprisingly, their friendship raises some harsh objections from the townsfolk -- and the local Ku Klux Klan. Jeff Bleckner directs.
