About the Movie

Oscar-nominated drama with Academy Award-nominee Alec Baldwin ("The Cooler," "The Royal Tenenbaums") as an assistant DA seeking justice for the 1963 murder of civil rights leader Medgar Evers. Co-starring Oscar-winner Whoopi Goldberg ("Sister Act," "Ghost") as the slain leader's wife, Oscar-nominee and Emmy-winner James Woods ("Any Given Sunday," "The Virgin Suicides") as his killer, and Diane Ladd ("28 Days," "Primary Colors"), Oscar-nominee William H. Macy ("Jurassic Park III," "State and Main"), Craig T. Nelson ("The Devil's Advocate," TV's "Coach") and Michael O'Keefe ("The Pledge," TV's "Roseanne"). Woods received an Academy Award nomination for his powerfully chilling performance as Byron De La Beckwith.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Rob Reiner's self-congratulatory Ghosts of Mississippi portrays Medgar Evers' slaying from the viewpoint of a white guy and can't even do a capable job of that. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

great movie! suspenseful and entertaining!

Great movie, kept me guessing right up until the end. Worth buying to watch again and again. great acting on the part of everyone including whoopi goldberg. She plays a serious role every bit as good as she does comedy.

Political Correct Crap

Rob Reiner will always be the Meathead from the left. This could have been a great movie in the hands of an Oliver Stone. The old South was much more complex than this glossed over bad history lesson. The only great performance is James Woods as the killer racist pig. I wish Mississippi Burning was available on iTunes.

Intense drama. Perfect!
