You can tell it is adapted from a play and so it can feel like it loses momentum. But performances are top notch
Tells an interesting story. It's dialogue heavy, but that's to be expected for a stage adaptation.
I really like this film. The dialogue is awesome
History porn aside, each character represents and aspect of the black American struggle and a unique perspective on it. Amazing writing.
The four leads give an outstanding performance. The writing and chemistry are top notch.
Regina King's direction is fantastic. Slow start but a great film/biopic.
Dialogue based, this movie brings amazing performances and provoking speeches, providing different perspectives about Black America.
Incredible performances and sizzling dialogue make Regina King's directorial debut one worth applause. Great handling of dark subject matter

It is 1943, and the German army—ravaged and demoralised—is hastily retreating from the Russian front. In the midst of the madness, conflict brews between the aristocratic yet ultimately pusillanimous Captain Stransky and the courageous Corporal Steiner.

However, within his pompous persona lies a quivering coward who longs for the Iron Cross so that he can return to Berlin a hero. Steiner, on the other hand is cynical, defiantly non-conformist and more concerned with the safety of his own men rather than the horde of military decorations offered to him by his superiors.
