Initially they have little to say to each other, but as things progress and they experience assorted harrowing situations on the trip, a mutual respect begins to develop. The film arrives with five Oscar nominations as well as numerous other wins and nominations, including three Golden Globe wins.

CommentsComplex and mature themes in a prejudicial society and era that dealt with love, forgiveness, unlikely friendships, prejudicial society, music, sacrifice, loneliness, denial, standing for what is right, growth through introspection, segregation and a racist ideology. The themes dealt with, especially the prejudicial themes based on race might cause children younger than 13 who are not mature enough to understand them might get morally and psychologically threatened by it, even though is it an educational true biographical story told in a positive manner.
