RE: I think the family was mixed looking enough to have produced a whiter
looking child. This isn't something uncommon to people of mixed
This is exactly what I am talking about--but then again I may be beating a
dead horse? Why was the character of Coleman the ONLY child to have these
features and not look at all--not even a little bit--like his siblings?
I have never seen that happen in a family before--unless one of the
children had a different father.
I did like the family they chose--especially the mother. It really gave me
chills when Coleman was talking with his Mother about passing for white, and how
he got married...and his mother asked him if she would ever see her
grandchildren. And what would he do if his grandchildren had a dark shade of
skin--accuse their mother of cheating with a black man?
The movie DID have some good points but I just couldn't get over the
Anthony Hopkins! And maybe I am a bit too dramatic--because I did feel alot
distanced from the family, and not understanding certain things that could be
elaborated on. Hehe but see how opinionated I am!!
