GRAPHIC REVIEW

SUMMARY
Directed by Spike Lee from a screenplay written by James McBride, the author of the acclaimed novel of the same name, the film chronicles the story of four African-American soldiers who are members of the U.S. Army as part of the all-black 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division stationed in Tuscany, Italy, during World War II. They experience the tragedy and triumph of the war as they find themselves trapped behind enemy lines and separated from their unit after one of them risks his life to save an Italian boy.

REVIEW:
Writer McBride tells us that the WW2 Buffalo Soldiers weren’t the first African Americans to fight for the U.S. In fact, the term Buffalo Soldier dates back to the Mexican War in the 1840s. It was a nickname that the Native Americans gave to them.

All but forgotten to history, the Buffalo Soldiers suddenly emerge into the public eye. Good things they do and their service do not get the press, but the bad things do. This movie reminds us that ultimately, despite the headlines, it’s good that has real eternal value. Thanks Spike Lee for this epic reminder!

Directed by Spike Lee, MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA follows four members of the U.S. Army's all-black 92nd Infantry Division, the Buffalo Soldiers, that are trapped behind enemy lines after one of them risks his life to save a traumatized Italian boy.
