Why LIBERTY HEIGHTS didn't enjoy a bigger box office presence and success is only evidence that the tender little movies get buried by the blockbuster explosion epics. This incredibly adroit recapturing of the 1950's, with all the incipient class and race issues just below the headline level, helps us understand our own insecurites no matter which one of the numerous minority groups we each claim. This is a simple, wonderful film that addresses major issues in such an honest manner that we cannot help but grow from the experience. A feel good, keep-on- the-active-shelf-of-the-DVD-library treasure!
