In 1935, 99-year-old former slave Shadrach asks to be buried on the soil where he was born to slavery, and that land is owned by the large Dabney family, consisting of Vernon, Trixie and their seven children, and to bury a black man on that land is a violation of strict Virginia law. - IMDb

Shadrach is one of those films that make you want to see it over and over again. It is a great story and the overall theme is simple yet very enjoyable. The scene towards the end, where the old man is recalling his past, is truly wonderful, where he as a boy is thoroughly enjoying the friendship and shared adventures with his friends, and the swimming and jumping into the water part really stirs the emotions. It would be good to learn of other members viewpoints on this film.

In terms of the shameful history of slavery and racial prejudice in America, this film does much to illustrate the ability of casting scorn on that problem, and in fact provides us with an almost light-hearted approach to it. It is a very simple yet heart-warming story, wonderfully acted, and also gives us an interesting contrast between poverty and comfort. The two boys; Paul and Little Mole, epitomise the wealth of friendship, where differences in upbringing are cast aside as would be a pair of dirty socks, even to the point of Paul ignoring his best friend Little Mole’s apparent body odour. Amidst the peripherals of moonshine, incest and trying to eke a living, the arrival of a man desperate to be buried on the land of his boyhood adds a wonderful interlude, and the end of the film well and truly justifies the means, cocking a snoop at the mindless laws of that period, and more importantly, fulfilling a promise to a dying man. The nudity is only worth mentioning because it fits in perfectly with the other aspects of the film, and if you have never been skinny dipping, then you haven’t lived.

An admittedly slow, but absorbing drama. Scott Terra gives a great performance, but Daniel Treat steals the show with his delightful portrayal of Little Mole. An under-rated movie gem.
