His thoughtful script, with its well-formed characters, memorable dialogue and evocative settings, doesn't paint a rosy Utopian picture of blacks and whites living together in perfect harmony
That said, Rebellion illuminates an historical period and an event about which most Americans know little, so on this side
If you've spent much time in the Old Testament, Samson is someone you might think of as larger than life, a "biblical Hercules" minus the myth--Israel's last and, arguably, most legendary judge.
