Flick Pick: Glory

(Tri-Star, 1989)

The moving and well-done story of the Massachussetts 54th Infantry, the first black troops mustered to serve for the Union in the Civil War. Matthew Broderick and Cary Elwes are put through their paces in dramatic roles, and surpassing performances by Andre Braugher, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington, in the role that won him Best Supporting Actor, move this piece into the ranks of great American war films.
